Another week of great strides is in the books. It is almost daily that I notice a new difference: a way I lean a certain direction easier, picking up different things in different positions, reaching for items at different levels, stretches become easier, getting up or moving into different positions (can now rest on side in bed - yes, takes lots of muscles, many you would not know typically, to do such), legs are more in sync (especially when on crystal mat for sessions), left leg a lot more active (nightly twitches), left leg mimicking right leg as well when sitting or doing transfer, left leg assuming proper positions more often (muscle memory I suspect - or somehow neuro-physio related), and many others examples.
As I thought I was coming out of the recovery curve (go through different stages: progress, holding pattern, refueling, lift-off again) Monday of last week - as I was feeling better and thought coming out of 2 1/2 week energy depletion - it suddenly hit me again, and zonked me. It lasted a few more days and it appears now I am regaining strength. I know this because I can now wash a glass and plate without being winded.
There are so many areas that just cannot be covered on this site - one I can share tonight: organ regeneration. I spend countless hours researching how to recover, and stay super healthy. Most of my research brings me to a cellular, molecular level. Part of this process is to build a new foundation of which can stabilize the recovery platform - of which then the body can regenerate through the proper channels of energy and nutrition. They are one in the same inside, vastly different on the outside. Which brings me to another area of recovery - energy, specifically electricity in the body; what it is, and how it can heal us. Soon I will report on the results of some new energy therapies I am using to recover (crystal, infrared, negative ions, hydrogen). As well, I will start a couple more new therapies as Spring arrives soon - perfect timing to cleanse my body, and yours. Happy cleansing.
We have decided to take a short break on fundraising through social media, as some other media outlets are explored, including new print media and other. Stay tuned as many things are in the works. Andrew Whipple - Team Buddy/Quigley for Iron Man, Lake Placid, NY, is coming into its own stride, as Drew and his team start training daily. We wish him luck in his daily training. Though the goal still remains the same. Through giving you are truly receiving.
Please continue to share the story however you see fit, Thank you!

This past week saw more changes yet once again...
This past week saw more changes yet once again. For those who follow the sneeze meter - it is close to being back to pre-injury. The recovery curve has been in a valley for just over 3 weeks now. I thought I was coming out of the new medicine and regimen coma this week - until two days of troubled breathing, bend over abdominal pain, and having to eat in a lay down position (to ease digestion) - while muscles I never knew existed come back online. I forge on with the same medicine and new therapies that got me there. Some major changes still occurring in core - and will most likely continue for weeks and weeks to come.
Other news: continue to be more and more nimble in chair. Back is cracking in new ways and twisting into other positions. Shoulders and neck now taking on huge amounts of pain as compensating for lower back recovery. Also now able to move and stretch into new positions while laying down. Legs are more relaxed and less reactive, as nerves and muscles look to regain prior progress. A new walking therapy program should start in March - waiting to see test results. Next week will know effects of a new therapy I started two weeks ago to help increase circulation in body. Thank you again for your continued support.

This past week saw the low of the valley uniquely named this weeks recovery. It now appears as if I am heading back out of the valley, replete with more energy and strength to do more daily, including therapy. Though it should be noted that part of my therapy in recovery is learning to listen to the body, and let it heal at its pace. My head therapist found it amazingly funny that I was healing at an accelerated pace at which point I was doing less PT each week. Funny because she had been trying to get me to slow my roll (pub intended) for months. I still think however it is just coincidence.
Left leg continues its mission to get up to speed with its far neighbor to the East. It is coming back in no such similar order or frequency as the right. In fact, some parts are direct opposite. Nonetheless, it continues to mimic right more and more, and each day more nerves regrow, bringing with it more natural the feeling of having legs. In fact, one night this week when leaving my bedroom both legs felt as if never injured. It put a nice smile on my face, much like any important milestone.
My sneeze continues to get louder and stronger, basically: almost normal. All part of my continued progressive and aggressive journey to recover my core. As a new treatment comes into its second week I look to feel more connecting of my lower and upper body. Now able to better sit-up from laying position, move hips better while sitting and laying, hold an item with left hand in air while concurrently using right to reach across body to left, better control of legs while laying down, and even sat in Buddha position first time this week. Shoulders now taking new brunt of compensation pain while lower back continues to recover in ways I never knew existed.
As another great week of recovery inks the books, we also focus on Team Quigley/Buddy, Iron Man, Lake Placid, NY, as Andrew Whipple starts his teams daily training as well. We all wish them well. And look forward to his training updates.
Team Quigley-Ironman Lake Placid 2014-Team Buddy
Have a great week. Steven
