Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Hard as I try I can't get up without using my hand behind me to balance myself. I can get down without help just not up! Guess I get a 9.
    Guess I need to work on something new now. It's always something.


    I have a friend who has MS and she has difficulty walking. However, she has learned through a lot of hard work how to get up off the floor without holding on to anything. She has a rather lean frame and when she's sitting on the floor she brings her knees up close to her chest, feet flat on the floor and extends her arms straight out in front of her. She very quickly can get into a standing position. I watched her do this once and was amazed.

    Will have to try-but use to be able to just cross my feet and lower myself down. To get up, again cross the feet and the leg muscles will get you back up-Hopefully!


    Crossed my legs and could get up and down without any other assistance. Otherwise need at least one hand to get down and up.
    How many people are going to hurt themselves trying to do this!?
