This last week spared no surprises. My left leg continues to come along, catching up with the right, in its own rite, and order. It is more than strange to now experience a second leg returning cell by cell, nerve by nerve, muscle fiber by fiber, in a totally different order than the right. I am never surprised day to day on how my recovery continues weekly, and some days, especially of late, daily. I will save the daily leg changes for the sake of boredom. Only to say the left leg is stronger each week. I look forward to it making forward steps soon, especially in water.
Each few weeks different muscle groups come back online - even the minute ones you never knew you had (the kind you feel day after skiing or ice skating). The last few weeks, along with tiredness and pain and organ renewal, have wreaked havoc on my shoulders and neck. Well, this week it seems that it is moving to my forearms and triceps. Oh, and sitting in my chair is different this week; not only are legs taking part as they come back online more with different body movements (and reactions), but my back is different too. But I'm sure that piece of the puzzle will come soon.
On an different front - each 2-3 months I review all medicines, diet, supplements, exercises, and therapy. There are also times when there are lulls in big therapy jumps in progress forward, and they can wear on a soul, mine. They do not always come together but this time they did. And with the dip in energy due to organs renewing it has been a trying few weeks. Recently while in this period, or funk, I decided to stop taking my last Rx from the wonderlust docs that are all knowing. In the last 18 months I went from 9 medicines to 0. Though I do take supplements. As diet plan changes are being implemented, so too are the therapy pieces. It is usually a week or two that it takes me to identify them and allow them to find their way. In the coming weeks I will be implementing a new plant, to include: further crystal treatments, water therapy (new), PEMF (new), cold laser, meditation, other, and locomotive training. As promised the results of the crystal treatments are in - an amazing success. My body now craves that treatment, the best sign. Stay tuned for further updates on these new treatments, and updates on standing - as my time off is coming to an end, my body is now craving standing again. Might sound strange to stop an exercise that helps builds the legs, but that would be to obvious...what was really needed was time off so the insides could recover. Well, they are...updates in that area too soon. Spring has Sprung, a great season!
Phase II of our campaign to raise money for therapy, and to help others is soon to begin. We will be updating you further on Andrew Whipple, author of "Weekly Whip", and trainee/r of Iron Man, Lake Placid, NY, and his team as they prepare. In the meantime we continue to push forward with the fundraiser, please share the story if you have not.
Have a great week. Thank you. Steven
