Working Hard and Seeing Progress
I am now into my 2nd week of therapy and things are going well. I am getting physical, occupational, and speech therapy. (Not sure why I am still getting speech therapy, but there is a good chance that will end after this week.) The therapists are pushing me hard the 3 days I am there which I like. Today I reached a milestone. The physical therapist had me walk 2 circuits (about 123 feet each) with only my leg braces and a cane and 1 circuit by myself without any aids except my braces. That was the first time I had tried either and did fairly well--or so the therapist said. So that is definitely something to celebrate. (Right now, I am primarily getting around with a walker.) There is still a long way to go to walk independently, but I am very happy with every milestone I pass. Ever onward!!
