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!!

    In this awesome scheme of things you actually receive an A+ just for hard work. Exactly where you actually lost us was in your details. You know, as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn't be much more true right here. Having said that, let me inform you just what did give good results. The authoring is actually incredibly powerful and this is probably why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, despite the fact that I can certainly notice the jumps in reasoning you make, I am not sure of exactly how you appear to connect the ideas which produce the actual final result. For the moment I will subscribe to your position but hope in the foreseeable future you link your dots better.

    It's my belief that mesothelioma is most fatal cancer. It has unusual attributes. The more I actually look at it the more I am certain it does not react like a true solid human cancer. If perhaps mesothelioma can be a rogue viral infection, then there is the probability of developing a vaccine as well as offering vaccination for asbestos subjected people who are really at high risk connected with developing long term asbestos related malignancies. Thanks for revealing your ideas on this important ailment.

    Thanks for the suggestions you have shared here. Something else I would like to convey is that personal computer memory needs generally rise along with other innovations in the engineering. For instance, as soon as new generations of cpus are made in the market, there is certainly usually a related increase in the size and style preferences of both the laptop or computer memory and hard drive room. This is because software program operated by these processor chips will inevitably rise in power to leverage the new technological innovation.

    I have learned result-oriented things as a result of your blog. One other thing I'd like to say is the fact that newer laptop or computer os's have a tendency to allow extra memory to be played with, but they likewise demand more memory space simply to work. If someone's computer can't handle additional memory as well as the newest software program requires that storage increase, it could be the time to buy a new Computer. Thanks

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net
    from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type
    on various websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.

    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer
