I thought I would drop in after a long absence. There have been quite a few changes here at work - I now have 2 bosses and our internet use is monitored so long periods on Strokenet are over for me. Anyway, I am still going to PT twice a week and a couple of visits ago I JUMPED up a small step as part of a miniture circuit - JUMPED! I was so excited!!!!! I am still battling with hyper-extending my knee when walking, but maybe that will sort itself out eventually. I am studying part time, I go to classes every Sat morning. I am now doing a Financial Accounting course and boy - its a lot harder than I expected, so these old brain cells are really working overtime!!! It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and I got the best present - my Sister and her husband surprised me by coming to visit for the weekend. We had a really cool time and I can't wait to see her again over the Xmas period.
