"My Words Have Power"


Clarence Gets Ready and Waits for Josiah

Clarence had a list of his top 5 picks for Physical Therapy.  He had decided he would use a Physical Therapist, until he was fully recovered.  Though he had not made a final decision on a PT, he understood working with a professional was a priority.  Clarence left the list on the desk, and got moving to freshen up and get dressed before Josiah arrived.  Clarence wanted to assure Josiah he was capable of managing himself.  He was not going to let his ankle injury interfere with his independence.  With determination, he pushed himself into his bedroom and locked his wheelchair in the walk-in closet.  His fashion choices of the hour?  A blue oxford short sleeve shirt and some casual cargo shorts with blue loafer(s).  Clarence covered his foot with a cast and wound protector before getting into the shower.  He made sure to use the shower wand to control how much water poured over him.  Once Clarence was out of the shower, he dried off, brushed his curly hair, and then teased it with a combed.  Rolling himself over to the bed where his clothing lay, he started feeling tired.  Taking a deep breath, he continued and finished dressing himself.  Once he had dressed himself, reaity hit, when he looked down at his feet and saw the cast.
