Video: Recovery progress

Three weeks ago I could put one foot in front of the other only with great effort. This video, shot tonight at the gym, obviously shows substantial improvement. Problems still with balance, coordination, and spatial placement (a sense of where my feet are), and this makes it very difficult to walk well without concentration, and without looking at my feet. I cannot close my eyes while I am standing or I fall over. Feet and legs remain quite numb, though that is improving, I think. I am now driving whenever I want to, and my energy levels seem to be increasing every few days. Still the occasional horrific day where I am drained and unable to do anything, but learning my rhythms. Pretty much using only a cane now to walk around the house.
