I just want to say that I’m one of the luckiest people in the metro area. About a year ago I contracted an MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infection in my spinal column. It left me unable to walk unassisted.
I can’t afford a fancy electric wheelchair, and the damage to the nerves precludes me from using a regular wheelchair. My walker is too heavy to get in and out of my truck, so I just use a cane the best that I can.
Here’s the lucky part: Day in, day out, I see people of all walks of life going out of their way to assist me any way they can. Young, old, rich or poor, I see people being nothing but nice to me. For that I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart.
God bless you all. You have made an old man’s life worth living one more day.
