Today marks 8 weeks since the surgery and 7 weeks of physical therapy. I will have a more substantive update later; for now I wanted to post a short video of me on stairs. While there is still room for improvement the difference between this and before the surgery is amazing. I was at the point where stairs were very difficult for me and I could not lift my legs in front of me — I had to swing my legs in a circular motion up and around each step.
You are doing brilliantly. Well done, you continue to be an amazing inspiration to me and my son Matthew.
Thanks Deb, how is Matthew doing?
Smoother than butter on bread man! Well done! Proud of you!
You helped grease the tracks Todd. You were very instrumental in my decision making process.
Amazing Frantz. I remember the circular motion you are referring to. Thanks for continuing to share your journey. Very inspirational.
Thanks everyone. I find that when I look at video of me on stairs it’s a powerful reminder of how far I have come. My therapist and I are now working on planting my entire foot on each step so that I can push up from my heels instead of the front of my feet.
