Fantastic chapter. Ron is so incredibly Brave for going on this mission and I enjoyed the part where he absolutely stood his ground on the use of an unforgivable - even in these circumstances.

Harry may be able to walk again! How fantastic! 'His normal' - what a great way of wording it. After such an accident, I imagine it is hard to adjust to loosing your old 'normal' and developing a new way of life and living!

Some of my readers have substituted "foolhardy" for "brave" because if the mission fails, Ron has just condemned himself to a life in a wheelchair needlessly. However, he still has his convictions that certain spells shouldn't be used and he'll stand by those forever and always.

Yes, Silvia has made it official, Harry will begin pre-walking exercises after he gets back to The Groves after Christmas. If he really wants to walk badly enough, he'll make the progress needs to strengthen his muscles and learn to walk. According to the friend who is helping me with this story, finding one's new "normal" is a very frustrating process at times.

Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts on this chapter.

This is an excellent chapter. I'm so glad that Harry is starting to work on his mobility of his legs. I understand that Silvia worked on his mobility in the chair first so he could get around and learn to care for himself. That was a huge success when Harry was able to get around, get in and out of his chair on his own and even going up and down stairs. Of course he had to work on his upper body strength to do all of that. Now he is ready to start working on learning to use his legs again. That will greatly improve his feelings of self worth. The fact that his vision is improving and he understands that he may not achieve a total recovery back to where he was before the injury is acceptance. That is good because Harry wants more than anything to be able to do what he did before. Now he is accepting that may never happen but he is going to work toward that goal. Thanks for writing such an indepth story. I look forward to when Harry tells Ginny that he will be able to walk again. p

Silvia actually told Ginny that Harry would be starting leg exercises after the holidays, so it's not a new thing for her. You're right about Harry's outlook on life becoming much better with the work he's now puting in to learning to walk all over again. All along, Silvia has hinted that if he wants something bad enough--like going back to work--he just might be able to accomplish that goal.

I'm glad you liked the chapter enough to let me know you do. I look forward to reading more of your reviews.

Ah yes, Harry's physical therapy reminds me of the exercises my physical therapist had me do after my knee replacement. Doing too much too fast is worse than taking it easy and slow.

Harry is all fired up and ready to push himself too much in order walk sooner. Unfortunately, that attitude, as you know, isn't conducive to healing and making progress, so he'd best be served to add a little patience to his daily routine. Thanks for sharing your experience with me.

Well zippadeedoodah! You were Quickdraw McGraw on this update! Ron's plan sounds complicated, dangerous yet brillitant! I hope the wicked witch walks right into it! She is really a twit, though! Going after Draco once was an unmitigated disaster! Now she's going to take another shot at him!?! She's missing a couple of slices from her loaf of bread! Really enjoyed the scenes with Harry - he is back in rehab with a vengence and his confidence and determination are higher than the Hogwart's towers! Looking forward to the next chapter!

Your comment on my update quickness comes from the fact that I forgot to send Aggiebell the final version of last week's chapter last Wednesday. We discovered that little faux pas on Tuesday. Oops.

The Wicked Witch does have a problem with her minions, especially Dawson because he doesn't follow directions very well. He has to add his own signature to any assignment she gives him, so actually confronting Draco outright was his idea, not hers.

And yes, Harry is back in rehab doing what he does best; push himself so he can get where he wants to quicker. There's more rehab coming in the next chapter.

I'm glad you liked the chapter. Thanks for reading. See you next Thursday...
