I love my couch.  It’s been 7 weeks since I’ve sat on my couch.  Obviously 5 of the weeks were because I was in the hospital, but the main reason I haven’t sat on my couch since I got home is because it was too low and squishy to get up from it by myself without hurting my sternum.

Slowly it’s been easier for me to stand up from a sitting position… my designated chair at home, waiting room chairs, chairs at restaurants, the car, etc.. so I decided to give the couch a whirl.  When I sat down on the couch, it was like coming home all over again.  To my delight I was able to get off the couch with ease by myself.  VICTORY
