They Didn't Ask Me

Five Feet

It's not walking yet. But I have hopped.

Standing up in my walker, I have been able to turn and also squidgy my foot to move over a bit. I have almost had hops before and maybe moved a few inches.

Today, Christmas Eve Eve, in four stands, I managed over a series of hops to move 6", 6", two feet and two feet. Actually had a couple of hops where I cleared the floor by half an inch. Steps cannot be too far away...?

This is big progress.

We're no longer using the Hoyer lift to haul me out of bed and wheelchair. We're now doing slideboard transfers between bed and wheelchair.

Progress. Progress. Progress.
