I am like so many other polio women. I love to be in the pool. My legs can move without using my hands, they almost look like they are normal, not so ravaged by polio.
Today we’ll start in my bedroom. Follow me to the shower then up from the floor into my wheelchair. Lets leave here and go to the pool.
I’ll slip from my wheelchair to the lounge. Then down to the ground and crawl to the pool and lower myself in. A warm day and warm water is wonderful on my body. I’ll play for you in the water so you can watch my legs move in the water. Then it is back out of the pool, back to my polio reality as I crawl back to the lounge chair, back to the wheelchair and back to my own reality.
