I have been walking independently much more this week. Yesterday I Took 218 steps without the cane. I actually walked into Flamingos for Taco Tuesday and was able to walk out. I teased the hostess who always is very helpful and helps with the wheelchair (she had not seen us coming in.) I asked her to get the wheelchair, and she turned to do so. She looked at me perplexed, and I told her that I had walked in. She was excited and smiled broadly.
On the other hand, my pain level has been worse this week than I believe from the beginning. I credit that to the muscles all being rejuvenated and working hard. I have been powering through, but when I get home, it seems to strike me. I certainly could use prayer for some relief.
