I'm probably on the tail end of the blog about Don's AFO, but is he about to start PT and get out the chair? Fill me in please! That's great he's doing great in PT.

Thanks Asha, Lin and Fred for the comments.


Yes, Fred, Don has started aquatic and physical therapy. You can find blog entries about them here in Strokenet's blog a few entries back and at my main blog that I keep at Bloggers: http://fromtheplanetaphasia.blogspot.com/ Tomorrow will be his 6th therapy session and his 2nd in the pool. He'd have had more in the pool but he cut himself pretty bad and had to wait for that to heal. He also has a brand new wheelchair coming this week which I'll blog about when it comes. His current PT guy thinks Don will walk when he gets the help of the new AFO, custom chair, and therapies but that guy is leaving the center and I hope the next PT we get is as open to the idea walking as he is. The first one we had before this one didn't set the goal for Don any where near as high and the original doctor's order was just to get Don stronger on transfers, so I don't know where this all will end. All I know is we're going to ride the wave until we fall off from exhaustion. :D
