    Congratulations are in order, Sunshine!

    Your muscles are probably staying in good shape as a result of your efforts.

    Yes, I think that a bruise is always due to bleeding under the skin.

    My average step count for May was 1,258 steps/day, based on 27 days. A little bit better than April (1,240).

    Agate that is really a great average, and to think you did it with a corn on your foot. Are you mostly using your walker or not? Either way it is just plain good!

    Two corns, actually--right close to each other on the sole of the left foot. The right foot has the beginnings of the same problem.

    I use the rollator when walking outside my apartment usually. Inside I hardly ever use it except for support when getting out of bed at night. I'm stiff and find that holding onto the rollator handles as I steady myself on my feet helps considerably sometimes.

    Why not rock and roll with a rollator? If you have to have one of these gadgets, you may as well enjoy it if you can.

    I see that people are working on trying to improve the image of people who use wheelchairs by changing the symbol:

    My opinion wasn't asked of course but I'm not sure I see the need for this change.

    That's my feeling too. The symbol they've been using has been in use since the 1970s. Seems to work OK.

    I agree. No need for a change. The new symbol looks much more energetic than I feel. I push myself to do what I do. A resting dishrag might best represent me.

    I can see how some people with spinal cord injuries but intact arms and energy might like this new symbol.

    Yes, some of them look as if they could conquer the world.

    The person in the new symbol looks almost as if he/she is supercharged with energy.
