another update

Hi everyone,

I've been home for almost two weeks now and things are going very well. The tingling and numbness I felt before I entered the hospital have gone, and I feel my body becoming normal again (back to what it used to). I still do physical therapy and I'm diong it three times a week, and after next week it'll be reduced down to two times a week. I'm able to sprint now and squat down, which dosen't seem like much but for me it's a big improvement. I remember the first time I tried to squat down I fell, also the pain in my legs is gone when I walk so it's easier for me now to be walking a lot. I have another followup in two months for my MRI, and a cardiology appointment in the next few weeks to see if I need to stay on my heart medicine, and a follow up with the rehab doctors (all my therapists too!) at the end of september to make sure i'm on track.

I plan on doing a full course load at school this quarter, joining a gym, working on my business, and getting a job as a mentor at a non-profit clinic. Things are looking up and I'm pretty happy. Below is a picture I put together from my time in the hospital to show yuo all the differences.

Thank you all again for everything yuo've done for me, and for praying for me and keeping me in yuor thoughts.

I was just invited to join the facebook group and read through your progress. You are an inspiration that few can compare to. Continue with your current progression because you are doing great, far better than most. You make me feel pathetic about the small things that got in the way of my education when you will be returning. You are an amazing person and this is exactly what I needed to see today. Thank you.
