As always Lenny, you inspire our survivors or caregivers to survivors how important it is to keep up with the work to recovering. You are a credit to all this as you have done so well.


I love your emoticons. Wish I could get mine to work. lol

Keep on improving and others will follow your lead. Work, work, work is the key to improving the functions of all your body parts when it's done regularly or even daily.
