Another Big Step Forward
As today nears an end I have to celebrate. For over seven months straight I’ve been relying on a cane to take pressure off my legs and keep me from falling. I’ve used it so much that my wrist is giving me fits and my legs have gotten even weaker. I’ve known things have to change if I’m to regain any of my leg strength.
Today, I’ve gone all day without using my cane for first time. Yes, my legs are achy, heavy and weak. I feel like you’ve taken me out of a wheel chair. My legs are getting back used to carrying my full weight. I’ve had no falls or concerns about falling all day. With every step freedom is breathed into my heart.
Tomorrow afternoon I start back physical therapy. I’ve not done any therapy in well over a year. I’m so excited to get back to strength training. I plan to give everything I’ve got to further my recovery. My Stimulator and CBD are still keeping my pain very manageable. I know this therapy will stir up some nerve dust within, but I’m so hopeful for further progress. The more I ponder where I’m at today I can’t help but praise God!. Six months ago I thought I was totally down for the count. Yet, God continues to pick me up and take me further.
“He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.” (Psalm 40:2
