310 feet

Got back to pt today went 310 feet which is from one side of the hospital to the other. Getting closer to home day by day. Still some medical stuff to deal with and will be for a while but I can do a lot of it at home or going to outpatient stuff. The thoughts and prayers are working.

A lot of good news today.

A lot of good news today. All of my bad numbers are lowering. Still not where they need to be but getting there. The X-ray was good. Catscan was good no blood clots and clean strong lungs not perfect but a huge change from no lungs and a machine and a collapsed lung. Spinal tap returned with no problems in the brain which was a concern with my headaches and soreness. So it's just working out every day. Thanks I love reading the comments and the visitors it really helps me get better faster. Miss you all love you all and awaiting my homemade spaghetti ( Ty Lois). And my fresh philly pretzels (ty steve jason erik) and my piece of chiken steak (ty ruth and marty) thanks everyone for all the MUCH NEEDED support. You guys all had a huge part of me surviving and healing.

Another spinal tap-

Got a spinal tap some time this morning just to be safe, of headaches lately. Then an emg where the put needles in ur muscles and check for major nerve damage. My left arm and leg, mostly foot are still numbinsh and weak and the foot can't move up. Good sign I was able to move it the tiniest bit in pt yesterday but only once. I am looking forward to my homemade spaghetti meatball and sausage and homemade garlic bread dinner. That will brighten a day of tests mixed with hard workouts up. Love you all. Enjoy every day and don't take advantage of the little things you may miss them one day. Thanks for all the support.

Walked 10 feet

Took some steps today on the lifting machine. Walked 10 feet. Now I need to get my butt and hams stronger to stand on my own. Still very weak arms and get tired real quick. Getting out of bed into a wheelchair is still exhausting. Feeling a little stronger each day.
