    i did it!

    i slider board transfered into bed and undressed myself. i got positioned perfectly and even plugged in my chair. it took 2 1/2 hours but i did it with no help. i was all alone so i had to succede, failure would mean spending the night on the floor or worse.


    thanx to shaun for showing it can be done, and carrie without whom i would have wussed out. i couldn't tell a lil hottie i was gonna do it then turn chicken!

    right on dude!

    i bet the 2.5 hours will whittle away quickly. it took me 50 minutes to put my pants on the first time, now it's only 1 or 2.

    Godspeed...

    Fantastic. After I started to undress myself, dressing myself was the next goal. Reinforce your belt loops and the loops on your socks.

    Not waiting or depending on someone else is a great feeling.

    Cpsine! Awesome dude! I told my mom "I'm a little worried one of my buds is lying on the floor in Texas, Mom." She looked at me crazy....but now I'll be happy to tell her you weren't! Yay, yay, yay!
