Yes, walking. Ok, I am using a walker to do it, but WALKING! I went up and down the stairs twice yesterday, took a shower at my own house, and WOW!
While the PT was here (for my last visit) she taught me how to get myself in and out of the car and it is my plan to drive myself to my outpatient PT appointment on Monday.
On Pat’s blog he has been talking about me jumping up and kicking my heels in the air. Since we don’t anticipate that anytime soon, my friend Cil made up this picture for me! Thanks sweetie!
On a note of encouragement, I predict an economic upturn in the near future. With me walking and driving and generally getting out again, consumer spending numbers should show a dramatic increase! The stock market should rebound shortly thereafter.
