Something incredible happened yesterday. The switch in my brain that controls the left side of my body suddenly clicked on and my left side; leg, torso, neck,shoulder and face woke up. I still have no movement in my left arm and hand, but the shoulder woke up today and that’s something. Saturday, I was talking single tiny steps that I had to concentrate on fully. There was no fluidity of movement. Then yesterday everything just remembered how to move and , the above video was shot. I must confess to having given up hope of ever walking properly again about a month ago but my rebellious body apparently didn’t . It’s almost impossible not to give into the depression that inevitably comes with a long, slow recovery . I can now say, as of today, with confidence and for the very first time that I finally believe I will be walking. And it’s going to be soon!
