Today marks five weeks with no wheelchair! Five weeks I have been walking with a walker, and I am getting stronger!
I can really feel a difference in my legs with each step I take. It still hasn't quite sunk in that I might someday be walking somewhat normal again, but I think that's just the pessimist in me not wanting to count her chickens before they hatch.
I am getting stronger. It's almost unbelievable that I am able to say those words. I still have my days when it seems like it's taking so long, and there is so much pain, that I have to remind myself how far I've come. Then there are days like today when I'm an emotional wreck because I just can't believe how much I am progressing in such a short period of time. I can't believe it took me this long to try, and now I am getting better. I just can't believe it.
Step count today: 936
Steps I'm ahead: 7,327
