It's the end of April 2012, a little over a year since my neurological setback & a couple months past the 3 year mark since my avalanche: Finally, the last 3 or 4 weeks have been positive as I've made strides of improvement in my walking and balance issues from the setback! At therapy, I do whats called "single limb stance", where I balance on my most affected leg with nothing else holding me. At the height of the setback, 6 to 8 seconds was a good day. Yesterday, I stood for 46 seconds! My next goal is 60 plus. My left leg motor still fights me a little but my strides are getting smoother and I can spend a ton more time on my feet before fatigue sets in.
ALL GOOD NEWS!
