I really don't want to turn this into my own personal blog or anything, but I have gotten to know so many people here on a personal level that I have trouble not making these kinds of posts. I mean, sometimes you get so excited about something, you want to let everyone know as quickly as possible...

I took my first steps in a walker today. It was my goal since the accident to be able to walk (with a walker) to the Christmas table. Whether I do that literally or not, I'm going to call that one good!

I walked a bit over 30', but who's counting the feet. The important thing is the experience.

Padraic - That's good news indeed! Keep at it, and you'll be ready to fish in no time. Please add my name to the list of people that would be honored to take you fishing whenever you'd like to go......Ed

Then I gotta lotta weakness!

Seriously though, I believe that and I've been workin' hard. My therapists sometimes worry that I'll push too hard or take too many chances. Karen (the therapist I was working with today) begged me not to try to walk at home yet. She doesn't want me to fall. What a worry-wort!

By the way, I'll be bringing my camera to therapy on Friday. So watch for a real-live recreation.
