I have thrilled and excited myself (please, out of the gutter). During physical therapy on Friday I managed to take 4 "steps" on the parallel bars. The progress is amazing - only two days ago I couldn't even bear to have my left leg vertical for more than a few seconds. Planning to spend a good bit of time in the wheelchair on Saturday and Sunday working on the ability to be vertical. Later on Friday I was able to actually work on a client file for a few minutes - took over an hour for the tax software to update. So visible progress on two different areas. I've had visits from quite a few folks and it's been wonderful to catch up. Most who come say I'm looking pretty good - although they haven't commented on what they are comparing. Life is good and an adventure. I'm not suggesting you join me on this path but I would love to hear from you. Thank you for all the cards, well wishes, healing thoughts, prayers and thoughts.
