    I'm looking back at all this great advice that I received. Worth more than I can say. I'm walking without a cane now. I got up and down on the floor in PT. I took a real bath! I'm going to practice this more outside the bath. I'm gardening, hauled tree branches over the pasture, and caught a naughty chicken outside her rub. I'm much improved but still have a long ways to go. M

    I can relate to your story. 😂

    I am sure you have spoken wise words. I am just so fearful of falling and being worn down that I need to push myself out of my comfort zone. It's where I make the biggest gains. I am taking good care of myself, eating right, sleeping, exercise. Thank you for your concern.
  4. Hi Jon, I'm working on my comeback too! It's nice to meet you. I just gave up my cane except for long walks and I'm starting over with the distance cane free. I hear you on the gait and your desire to push hard. I hope to catch up to your progress soon! Margo

    Hi Eric, Your mention of giving myself grace very timely.I pushed very hard in PT and OT this week. I went to the grocery store. I'm driving myself. I walked 40 minutes (cane). Then I spent two days so sore that it was hard to move. I'm so glad that I get this way because it means I'm able to push hard. Margo

    I have that feeling when stretching like when yawning. It's so nice to put a name to it! Mine has slowly been going away. The most affected area is my toes curling and I'm working on toe extension. It's helping. Like others have said weight bearing and stretching have helped. I hope it eases up.

    Hi Tracy, How nice it is to "meet" you! Thank you for you words of encouragement because they mean so much. M
  11. Greetings! I'm Margo and I had a right side lacunar stroke on Jan. 17th. I have been home from rehab since Feb 6th.I was in a wheelchair with almost no movement of the left arm. I'm currently walking with a cane only outside and my arm is well on its way. I'm determined to push every day and inspire myself and others if I can. I am still working (never stopped). It's nice to meet everyone! 🙂
