Physical therapy is done!

Yesterday was my last day with the physical therapist. I achieved a very high score on all of the tests for balance and endurance. It was a substantial improvement over last week and I think it’s due to my stubborn independence and just wanting to try to resume a somewhat normal life. Basically, the results of yesterday’s tests result in me not needing any assistance in walking, i.e., a cane or walker. However, when walking outstide on the uneven sidewalks and other outdoor pavements, I prefer to have the cane with me to help my balance, but there are stretches where I can walk unassisted. Very exciting … and now on to new challenges!

Strength and love,
Seth

  5. Seth – Just so I understand…. you THINK that the reason for the substantial improvement was stubborness? OK, that works, but add an amazing tenacity and strong will to move ahead on this journey to your formula for nailing the challenges that await, OK?

    Hang in there – stay strong (ans stubborn) – and thanks for the “red envelope”
