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!!

    One thing I want to reply to is that fat reduction plan fast may be possible by the appropriate diet and exercise. Ones size not merely affects the look, but also the general quality of life. Self-esteem, melancholy, health risks, in addition to physical abilities are influenced in an increase in weight. It is possible to make everything right and still gain. Should this happen, a medical problem may be the perpetrator. While too much food but not enough exercise are usually at fault, common medical conditions and popular prescriptions can easily greatly help to increase size. Thx for your post here.

    I have seen a great deal of useful elements on your web-site about desktops. However, I've the viewpoint that lap tops are still less than powerful enough to be a sensible choice if you generally do projects that require lots of power, including video enhancing. But for website surfing, microsoft word processing, and a lot other popular computer work they are all right, provided you can't mind the screen size. Appreciate sharing your thinking.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
