A lot happens in a week!
One week ago I went to my doctor. He raised the voltage on my deep brain stimulators by half a volt on each side. By doing so, once I had slept under the new conditions, my doctor and I seemed to unlock new layers of ability without dyskinesia.
When I got to physical therapy this Thursday I showed my therapist pages 110-115 of John Pepper's book, the section on conscious walking. He read them and he started thinking. It didn't take long before I was praticing walking WITHOUT a walker for the first time since my knee replacement surgery November 20!
It was hard, it was scary, it was not very good, it was WALKING!
Thank you to Dr. Houghton for the ability , to John Pepper for the possibility, and to Matt Thomas for the creativiity.
Just imagine the parade. Me followed by two men holding tight to my gait belt; they are followed by a Third person pushing a chair.
That was my problem. Keep calm…
