During these past few weeks I have been progressing to new heights in Ekso. This past Monday I walked a total of 1087 steps in the Ekso Skeleton. Setting the bar higher each time I put this suit on. After walking that many steps I had an aching feeling in my legs. Right where the heel is there was this aching pain that started lasting several hours. It was a different feeling then I had before. Only once have I noticed this pain in my legs and that was the very first time I used the Ekso suit. Hard to say if this was good or bad but I guess feeling anything at all make it good. I’ve about reached the six month mark since my accident at this point the swelling should have gone down significantly, but injuries like mine take a long time to fully heal. I’m anxious to see with the swelling gone down what return I hopefully get back in these next six months. All I know is that God’s faithful even if the healing doesn’t come. I have hope for the future with new doors of opportunity opening up for me. I am trying to get involved through one of my therapist with this organization that talks to kids about spinal cord injuries and preventing them. I get to share my story and talk to kids about drinking and driving. I’m excited to be able to talk with teenagers so that they may hear my words of advice and put them to use in their lives as they grow and mature. As I keep moving forward in this journey I have a lot to give back along my way. Looking ahead and taking one STEP at a time towards a full recovery.
I ask for continued prayer for sensation and function in my legs. I also ask for prayers for strength and courage as I go forth. God Bless! And thank all of you for your continued prayers and love
