if i could dance you can bet i’d be doing something innapropriate

You probably heard the news.

Unless you lived in a cave, worked under a rock, or ate bran flakes for dessert (which is just inhumane), you probably heard me going crazy with excitement.

Early in the morning, I was taken aback when I thought I felt the blanket against my foot…my right foot.  That’s the foot that feels nothing.  It hasn’t for months, I’m used to it by now.

Did I feel the blanket?  I wasn’t sure.

So I went to my Speech therapy and I went to my Occupational therapy, I said F-words and pushed books with my weaker arm.

Then finally physical therapy started.  I stretched what needed to be stretched, I walked farther than I had before,  I balanced my body, I directed my limbs.  Then, at the end, I asked,

“Is it possible that I would be feeling so soon?”

B had me close my eyes while she poked at different spots, and I gave her my honest feelings.

She poked.

And poked.


And I answered.

At the end, B put my clothes all back to normal and straightened everything out.

“Well, I’d say you’ve got sensation, but not localization,” B finally said.

She might as well have said,” You didn’t win the $100 million lottery, only the $90 million lottery.  sorry.”

What she said was: starting to get feeling, can’t tell where yet.


Cause they lost me at STARTING TO GET FEELING!!!

It’s ok, I screamed a little too.

    Wow!! Another of life’s little miracles. It’s amazing how something so small can be one of the biggest moments of your life – something you will remember forever. It’s the little things we all take for granted and the absolute most important things in our lives. So here’s to the little things, Anissa! Congrats on feeling again! ♥
