I’ve been very lucky this year that my insurance was able to give me more therapy visits than scheduled.
We were shocked when something finally worked in our favor.
It might not seem like a reason to celebrate for most. It meant more exercising, more straining, more stretching, more MORE.
More early mornings.
I take it as a good thing.
Today I had the chance to try something new.
For the first time I wrapped my leg in a brace that held my knee extra tightly.
Then I gripped tightly to a cane.
And I walked with Beth (my PT) securely beside me.
You got that, right?
The important words?
Those would be CANE and WALKED.
I left with an emotion like no other. I don’t know if I can explain how it made me feel.
I know there’s a lot in front of me yet to do.
But for a second, just a second, I could see the future in front of me…standing tall and upright.
