    I believe god has a season fir my recovery and He will set the time, so relax and keep working. My workouts at the gym get better and stronger.

    I started in the VR study, they come to me 3 times a week for two hours. It uses Saebo vrehab software on a Microsoft connect set up. I stand in front of a monitor and make my avatar do the exercises. It's tiring and uses my left arm a lot for the whole time. not sure what it will ultimately do, but it does get the arm moving a lot. they record my performance to compare sessions.it will last 5 weeks.

    yes to regular exercise! I started at the gym in may, couldn't hardly do anything the first time there , then it got easier and after a week of trying I could do most all the machines, and now I go daily, splitting the days into upper and lower body workouts, I even use my affected arm to push down on the seated tricep machine,I always start light then when I can do 15 reps comfortably, I move up 5 or 10 more. It has helped me tremendously with regaining muscle and strength, and made my left leg considerably stronger.I do crunches and stretching on the carpet when Im home.

    so far I've been using it steadily, my hand and arm need assistance from the good one to get som=-e of the atrivities done. Its fun but also hard. Hoping it helps.
  15. I think I would have been in a better situation had the ER doctor nor drastically lowered my bp after the tia. But no wish to tell, I am living as well as I can and making to most of every day. Gotta keep on keeping on. For sure.
