CPM Machine & A Dynasplint

A quick update.

Things are still going well - every day I can do a bit more. I've been staying in the CPM machine 6+ hours a day and have even been able to top the 8 miserable hours in the rack Dynasplint.

Yesterday, I'm so happy to report, I took my first steps! One crutch, putting my heel down and walking. My leg still isn't fully straight - and it's still up in the air whether it ever will be - but every night in the Dynasplint helps and I'm still only putting 2 lbs pressure at 8 hours/night - eventually we'll move gradually up to 4 lbs pressure; so there's still hope I'll get much straighter. But taking those first few steps really felt like a breakthrough to me. I imagine what it will be like to walk crutch-free - how amazing!

I am also able to lift my leg again - after surgery I wasn't able to lift it or move it much without using my hand to force and guide it. That happened after the first surgery as well, but as of today I can move it, lift it, swing it to the side - it hurts like the dickens, but that will go away.

So all's well so far. Just wanted to let you know. I don't get on here much because it's 6/hours or more a day in one and 8/hours or more in the other - so I'm in bed a lot. But I'm doing well! Keep thinking of me!!

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    One more issue is that video gaming became one of the all-time most significant forms of fun for people of nearly every age. Kids have fun with video games, and also adults do, too. The actual XBox 360 is one of the favorite games systems for folks who love to have a huge variety of video games available to them, in addition to who like to relax and play live with some others all over the world. Thanks for sharing your thinking.

    I leave a comment whenever I especially enjoy a post on a site or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. Usually it is a result of the passion communicated in the article I read. And after this post. I was actually excited enough to drop a thought 🙂 I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or do some of the remarks appear as if they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you list all of all your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
