That's great news DC! Is there anything that physical therapist did for you that you can't do for yourself? Other than push you harder and farther than you want to be pushed that is.

Glad to hear you're back home.

well yeah those folks know what musles come back first, how much exercise is too much etc but sometimes i had them scratching their heads with stuff like "if you start getting like 10% return in a given muscle, does that little motion do anything to strengthen the rest of the muscle, or does it all have to be under tension to help?"
i hit the books (well the net) whie i was in there. went thru muscle gruoups etc, one of my favorite things wa to search for an octane booster for my brain since that's where the damage was. we spent a week ruling out oxygen (popular 100 years ago but kinda hazardous now), couple days on neuromuscular stimuli, vibration seems to do some good, at least it feels better.

Glad to see you're coming around DC! One good exercise is to point the corners of your mouth upwards several times a day--seems to help a lot!

i guess it's a curse - i invented something on the way home. i told the therapist helping with my car transfer that i needed a grip, right about there - pointing at the middle of the passenger window..well she said, there isn't one there so i hadta stretch and twist to get my cheeks centered up so i could sit upright. so while suzn ran into walmart, i sat there and pondered the problem. there's nothing to attach to right there, and the nearest solid thing is the door frame. hmmmm. so when she came back, i asked her to find the (about 3/4" wide canvas webbing) "ladder" i used to lift my foot around. she opened the door & window, wrapped the ladder around the upper front corner of the door frame and shut the door & window, thus trapping the strap in the car door. done! now i have a nice heavy place to grab, it hangs right where i need it, didn't make any holes or cost anything. i like stuff like that. one could use a towwel the same way i guess. :)
i'd tell ya how to roll around in bed, adjust the covers & get up in the morning, using 1 hand & a cane for a tool -- but that's another story..
