I am still learning how to walk. I am also learning how to pick up tissues with my toes, a more difficult feat than I would have imagined. I can make my own hard boiled eggs.

Exactly a year ago
I was learning to walk
I took meals
With the rest
Of the physical therapy floor.
I was the youngest
By far.
I had a lot to learn
But then again
We all did.
I knew
What cranberry juice
And prune juice
Were good for.
Others knew
It was possible
To order hard boiled eggs.
We all
Knew different things.
Each thing
Made life
A little easier.
We laughed
And cheered
When the woman
With the broken hip
Went home.
