Now that the protective plate for my brain had been put in, and the incision healed, Jack took me to Superior Motors and helped me buy my '84 red Buick which I loved and have driven for many years since.
I wouldn't have to feel trapped anymore. I could get out of the house! I could go! But it had been so long since I had driven. So Jack called Gene B, a student driver instructor, to check my driving out before driving by myself. I drove slowly and with extreme caution; driving at first felt so unfamiliar. Gene passed me in spite of the fact I had to use my left foot on the pedals and drive with my limp right hand in my lap.
