Skeptic

My mother, who has been unable to walk and bedridden in a nursing care facility for months, can suddenly walk again. Not to mention dance. We had expected that she was going to spend the rest of her life at this "rehabilitation clinic." Now she thinks she will be out in a matter of months, if not sooner (which should be interesting considering she gave away most of her belongings).

What sparked such a dramatic recovery? A couple months ago, while RachelRachel and I were visiting, she told us how the nurses had decided she was making no progress and that there was no point in continuing her physical therapy. That it was unlikely she would ever even stand again, let alone walk. I asked, somewhat annoyed by her self-pity, "Why don't you just try to walk yourself," reminding her that if she wanted to walk again it was really up to her.

Since that day, her improvement has been "nothing short of miraculous," she tells us. I remain less than awed.

But, still, I think it's important for you to know that I'm the new Jesus. Bring all your medical issues to me and I will speak at you until you are healed by my sarcastic tones.

No Jews, please.
