A Beginning . . .

,

And I did! Weight-bearing at last!  Under the influence of Claui's embroidered message (destined for the Christmas tree but adorning my window sill just now,) I practiced pulling myself to a standing position from my wheelchair to a walker. Eventually I was able to stand unsupported (look, Ma, no hands) and able to stand at a table putting together a puzzle for five minutes.


No pain, a tiny bit of swimmie-headnesss at first, and the therapist feels things are looking good for rapid progress. Walking was not attempted -- perhaps tomorrow.

I will, of course, keep you posted on my progress.

It's the little things, eh?
The little things become the biggest things.

I can still remember the pure joy when I was able to walk after breaking my ankle in 4 places. A word of advice, take it slowly. Congratulations!

You can do the work, and only you will know the joy of that effort! Congratulations!

I remember that 5-minute puzzle. :-) A little thing, but it felt like a triumph. I'm so glad you're making progress.
