My poet friend Shirley sent this poem in response to my post yesterday.
Home is the place your heart resides
Home is the place that you decide
Home is the womb that holds the soul
Home is the place where one is whole
by Lisa Emry
Yep, that's what I was trying to say.
Eric and I had a meeting at his school today to initiate homebound education. He's missed school, not just as in absence, but he's missed being there, the learning environment, the comradery of friends. So even though there's only a couple weeks of school left, Eric is eager to get back to the books. We start Thursday.
After that meeting, I took Eric to our gym for a little exercise. His physical therapist asked him to try to walk for 5 minutes on the days he's not at the therapy center. So we walked around the indoor track. Eight minutes. And did some work with hand weights. He's working hard to get better. And in this past week since we've been home, he's gained five pounds.
