I've been getting a little bored with my physio therapy so we decided to switch it up a little. For the past few weeks instead of staying at home, I've have been going to the clinic. It’s been interesting and very different. They place me in a harness that supports me, putting me between even bars that I hold onto. Then I try to lock a knee, shift my weight over that knee and move my other foot forward. Although I can’t move my foot forward, my therapists do it for me. The idea is to stimulate the brain into thinking that I am in hopes of waking up some nerves. It’s exhausting but I am hopeful that this will be worth the effort.
We are also looking into starting water therapy. It will be a little challenging getting ready for the swim but it’s been known to be very beneficial as there is zero gravity. A lot of people are able to move more muscle groups in the water than they can on land.
I am still using my FES bike and am able to bike 50 -60 miles a week. My muscles are getting strong and my cardio is right up there. I may have the strongest legs that don’t walk. But I am ready, whenever God is ready to glorify Himself through healing me completely.
Please continue to pray that God will continue to give me what I need for each day and that I will be able to honor Him in my actions and thoughts. That one day soon He will heal me completely and allow me to walk again. Thank you all for your continued support and encouragement and most of all your prayers.
