They Didn't Ask Me

T-5 (Monday)

Back to the grind. Walked downstairs with the walker. Then walked 65 feet with the cane -- until I tire, I am beginning to smooth out my steps. Then as we went around the corridors on One, I got up from the seat on the walker and started taking small steps, holding the cane off the ground. Kept going for 8 feet. Rest. Then 12 feet of walking, including a few almost normal longer steps AND going around a corner.

Twelve Feet!

I tell you, this time has been so very productive that I feel much better about going home on Saturday.

Did some more work on strengthening my left hamstring. Then walk back to the elevator with the walker. And did some more sit-to-stands on the stairwell. First one went well. Second one I was tired and needed a little boost up. With time up, I'm not going to complain.

In OT we had a student volunteer from GVSU observing -- I love having students around. Played some Zoom Ball, arm exercises with 4 and 6! pound weights. More walking and picking up things.

Whew. Good and tired after all that. Onward to tomorrow!
