The angiogram showed nothing abnormal. This is good news in that there’s nothing wrong. It’s also the last medical thing we can do.
The basic scenario now is that everything is as it should be in terms of the initial spinal surgery / fusion and its healing. There’s nothing more for Dr’s to do. As for me regaining feeling in my legs and walking, it’s up to this body now to do it’s own thing. It’s up to me to take care of it & stay “strong” mentally. And up to all of us to pray for it and workshop it.
My next step will be an inpatient Physical Therapy Clinic to work on strengthening and skills to operate as I am today. When that will be is most likely this week, but like everything else it’s not a set timetable..
I have to say it so we’re all on the same page: I fully expect to be walking again. I have my eyes on the Half Ironman Triathlon in 2016 that I was training for. Though the other reality of not walking again is out there, it’s not the one I’m spending my energy on creating.
To that end, I do have different and new sensations in my legs everyday. Though I can’t feel someone touch my legs, I feel they’re there, I feel their weight, I get dead leg sensations, things are a happening in this body.
I love you guys!
I couldn’t ask for more support & love than I’m getting everyday.
Grateful isn’t a big enough word for how I feel.
