POSITIVE CHANGE!!

AWESOME NEWS from yesterday at the pool!  I've been putting my left arm (bad arm) up on a small backboard to let it float on the surface and try to move it without the resistance.  No luck the first day but yesterday I could let it float out a little and then PULL IT BACK!  I did it a dozen or more times and even lightly bounced the backboard off my body a few times!  It was such a good feeling to see my arm MOVE FOR THE FIRST TIME since the accident!  We'll watch it closely tomorrow to try to clarify which muscles are actually firing to make it happen. The recent MRI showed really no change from before so nothing to explain the weakness.  The injury is definitely significant but it always has been.  I have a nerve test on the left arm next week to narrow down the problem.  But, the good news is I've at least hit the plateau and don't feel it is getting any worse.  So now it's time to get it all back and then some!  I started Pool therapy and added a day of Physical therapy so two days a week I'm going PT, Gym, then the Pool all back to back.  The pool has already helped a ton with balance and range of motion in the leg.

Defeat Fear

"No passion so effectually robs the mind of all it's powers of acting and reasoning as fear."

Opportunity in Difficulty

 

 "A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities, and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties."

Harry Truman

Climbers recognize that the difference between molehills and mountains comes not in their degree of difficulty, but in their significance. Refuse to fight your way to the summit of a mountain unworthy of the climb.
