Good Day Ricochet,
Yesterday they decided I was strong enough to be released from rehab and I am back in my apartment. I can walk without the walker. I have good strength in legs and arms and a reasonable amount of balance. My endurance ability was what was in major question. The first week of rehab was depressing because I didn’t feel like my endurance was improving. Suddenly in the second week I began to come on. I could walk farther and still not be tired. I soon abandoned my walker and got my sea legs back.
I am still wearing the life vest. I must pass my cardiologist’s standards on heart function before he will let me free of the vest. I am confident I can do it now.
Thanks so much for all of your good wishes and prayers.
