Alitm - when it comes to this situation, I too probably am too literal. The OS says, good to go - yesterday the PT said, good to go and we wrapped up her visits. So, my head says, ok - good to go! Except there's a long way to go, and that's okay. I know, one day at a time. I have a crutch in the car, a cane ready to go, the walker in the house - so I've quite a selection. I was given some good exercises to practice going forward; the recliner is my reward after a session (no worries, not too rigorous at all). I finished the Poldark series (excellent) - and I'm really grateful to live in a time when modern medicine works so many wonders. Back then (1790's) who knows what they'd do with someone who couldn't walk! Thanks all for your support and encouragement. Have a great day!
