Thank You...

... to all of you who posted who share in my excitement with me! :D :D :D

And oh yes, Fiona, I hope you're going to post about your bike ride in Cambodia in this section too when you've completed it.

For the benefit of any latecomers, Fiona, who lost her leg in the Tsunami of December 2004, is training for a Charity Cycle Event. She and her friend Sarah will return to Asia and cycle 500km around Vietnam and Cambodia to raise money for amputees in Asia who do not have a chance of accessing the same kind of healthcare that Fiona was fortunate enough to receive.

Now there's a good cause if ever I heard one :D

Sponsor Fiona here

Good luck Fiona! ;)

Awww Afet,

I'm all embarrassed now. This thread is for YOU and your showering. Leave my sweaty cycling self out of it..... :)

I fell off my bike this morning on the way to work actually - was slightly embarrassing trying to explain to everybody who stopped to ask if I was OK why my right leg was at such a funny angle and was stuck in the peddle when the rest of me was half on the pavement and half on the road.....

Must try harder not to do battle with stationary lorries...

Ironically enough, I was on my way to work at the emergency room at the time :rolleyes: The evil nurses made me scrub out out my own road rash and then work a full shift. <_<

Marcus, you dark horse, you! ;)

What did you used to do in the emergency room? :huh:

Actually, let me rephrase that...

What was your position in.... No. OK, Let me try again.. :blink:

What was your job in the emergency room? :unsure:

Afet,

Congratulations.......I definitely know the feeling.... I stood in the shower and cried, when I took my first "stand up" shower... Isn't it amazing the satisfaction that we can get from doing something that we took for granted... Enjoy it.... you deserve to...I don't think that there is anyone here that wouldn't understand the satisfaction that you felt...

Congratulations Afet "ONE STEP FOR MANKIND - ONE GIANT LEAP FOR....AFET"

Yes, I also remember the "first" feeling very well. It is no small feat.

Sorry for the late congrats, but we've been out of town for the weekend.

You know what they say about girls with big feet, don't you? ;)

Whatever it is, I certainly qualify!! :blink: But then, I found out that Jackie Kennedy Onassis had the same size feet as me and suddenly I felt quite regal! :D

Thank you Sheila :D

Though I am always weary of going down in the shower. It can get kinda slick in there, as Shane said. Believe me, I had a few 'hang-onto-the-curtain' moments in there that day! ;)

(I know I may regret saying this, but...) They also happen to have a pair of big hands...as big feet usually means big hands too. ;)

WOW!!

No question, definately an achievement!! Bet it felt real good :D

I am jealous! i am still at the stage where i have to use a shower board and totally envious! using a shower board never really feels right does it?

Thanks for sharing it with us!!

I know the feeling, i had what i thought was a big achievement the other day and anyone i told just looked at me as if to say 'yes and?' for the first time in 17 years i took my dog for a walk on my own, albeit a short one, but i was so proud of myself, felt all grown up again! :D

keep smiling!! :)

Well, my hands aren't exactly plates of meat, Afet...but they are big...or should I say...long. :blink: It seems that growth of your hands and feet...are connected and so they're usually similar sizes. :)

That's great news, Terri! :D Did you use a halti on your dog? I can't walk my dog unless she's wearing one, as she pulls too much. :huh:

Oh, well, Marilyn...perhaps you and Afet are the exceptions that disprove 'the rule'. :blink:
