New milestones

Not three weeks ago I could barely walk halfway across my living room using a walker.  I just finished walking .85 miles on my treadmill, which is in the basement, where I haven’t been in three weeks. Starting speed, 1 mph. Ending speed, 2 mph. It took thirty minutes. Still lack the balance to do it without holding on, but big deal. Feet and legs were tingling/buzzing like crazy the whole time, and of course numb. The tingling/buzzing got worse the longer I walked. Signals are definitely struggling to get through somehow. My brain is healing.

Tomorrow – Driving.
