These past couple weeks have been going well. I had a surgery yesterday to take a filter out just above my groin. The filter was put in to prevent blood clots when my accident first occurred. The surgery went great and recovery was just a day. I have been pushing the Esko to new heights; getting smoother transitions and more steps each time I use it. I have almost reached 1500 steps in less than 40 mins of using the Ekso. I am trying to reach out to any study and research groups to be a candidate for any testing in spinal cord injury research. This past week my parents and I went to Cape Cod to start opening the summerhouse up. We are working on installing a ramp for me to use. For now my dad has to wheel me up a few steps, which isn’t the easiest amongst tasks. But just like everything else we’ve made it work. Through out this experience so far I’ve learned that its through trials and tribulations that we develop our character and who we are. It’s every opportunity that we can take and learn something from that helps us grow. I’m thankful for the function that I have and being able to be here on this earth with a second chance to grow mentally, spiritually, and physically. I’m grateful for the opportunity to beat this paralysis. I’m going to beat this; One step, one prayer, one day at a time. It’s God’s time right now. He has the plan I just need to stay focused and follow it.
I asked for prayers of sensation and strength back in my legs. For prayers of strength and will power, to keep pushing forward day in and day out til I’m healed. I hope all is well and everyone stay blessed! Lots of Love! And thanks again for everyone’s support!
