I just wanted to repeat a mention of Linda and Layng Martine.
Layng wrote one of the most poignant stories I've ever read....and by the's also beautifully written.

"We know that most people — strangers, anywhere — will knock themselves out to help us if we explain what we need. We know to say “Yes” to nearly everything because there is probably a way to do it. We know there is happiness available every day, most of it requiring more effort than money. And effort seems like a small price to pay for a day at the beach, a trip to New York or for dinner up eight steps to a friend’s home."

Beautiful. This will come, in time, for you both as well. They've had 15 years to adjust.

Kim...we're heading out all the time. I usually do a dry see if the stairs are doable.
Yesterday we climbed the stairs outside...thought I'd have a heart attack. Too narrow and Paul got a little side-tracked.
I think I'll wait a few more weeks before trying them again.
