ST. JOSEPH — Lisa Aiken has good days and bad days. When she's feeling good, she can chase her kids in the front yard with silly string. She cooks dinner and goes a few rounds on the elliptical. On bad days, Ms. Aiken's spinal injury hurts her so much she can't walk. Her family eats takeout from the gas station within walking distance of their home.
