Two Months

Today I have been home from the hospital two months.  When I first got home I wasn't sure if we were going to make it a week!  But we did and things usually run fairly smooth.


Since I have been home I have accomplished a lot ...
  • much more strength and control in my abs
  • More strength in my arms
  • Being able to get on my elbows while lying on my stomach (even if I have carpet burned them to the point of bleeding)
  • Being able to wiggle three toes (this doesn't sound as cool as it really is)
  • Muscle Tone
  • Reflexes  (even though these came back on their own)

Things are progressing.  When I was in the hospital I couldn't even hold my head up.  It's easier to see the things I can't do than everything I can, but everyday I get better, and stronger, and one day closer to a full recovery.
