Ann_B : Walking--crutch-less!
Diary entry posted Mon 8:20pm 6 June 2005

At least in theory. Went to PT today and walked in with no crutch, walker or wheelchair!!! Ya hOo Of course used the crutch when I walked from my front door to the car and at the grocery store later. But I can walk 20-30 steps around the house with no assistance and it feels really good. Have to work on NOT waddling, but putting both feet parallel to each other....that requires Thought while walking!

Had such a great weekend with Meg here. Had a very honest talk about my level of depression and decided to make an appt with a Fam Prac doc for early next week and decide then. So good to just talk and talk, and then we went to Lion King, (yes, wheelchair which was a good thing since the parking garage was 3 blocks away) and then we spent Sunday taking down the vertical blinds in my bedroom and putting up wood mini blinds. Tonight I got my brother to put the valance up for me! The wall is still white, but at least it doesn't look like a hospital room when I wake up in the morning any more. With all the hanging of the blinds, I was walking and helping and it felt so good.

Started some new stuff in PT, standing on the BL for a second or 2, then rocking back onto the other leg. Also something that works quads, that I use both legs on for now, but i bet in the future it will be just the BL.

Didn't get any work done today, between PT, lunch out and grocery shopping I was DONE when I got home and vegged since then. Tomorrow should be a good day.
