GREAT news indeed!!!
Good to hear that you spent Thanksgiving with friends, always good to be in a comfort zone of love and support.
If YOU are recognizing progress,,, that has to be a great confidence builder,,, which will just feed on itself.
Continued thoughts and prayers go out to you!

Well said...

Thank you to all you supporters! You are very much appreciated!

I received a card from a friend today that included a hand-written note that, frankly, stated exactly what I have come to believe is the way back... For those out there struggling in a similar manner to me, I hope these thoughts are helpful.

Hi Laurie!
Glad to see you posting again!
Years ago I raced Stockcars. When trying to go faster many people spend much time and effort looking for big gains. Seldom are they achieved. Instead I concentrated on finding small gains, a tenth of a second here a quarter of a second there. Pretty soon it adds up into being a winner.
You have had some really amazing "big gains" in your recovery. Don't get discouraged if the gains you see going forward are small ones. Remember a bunch of small gains added together are just as good as one big one.....You are already a winner!!

Best Regards....just jeff

I've been following this thread for awhile and I'm glad to see you're on the mend. Good luck to you and I hope you keep making good progress. The hard Northern Winter gives you plenty of time to concentrate on getting better-inside. Regards.

Laurie, it is good to hear from you. Yes, the note you received is right. Little steps over time is what it takes to get better. Keep on doing this and one day you will wake up with this nightmare behind you.

Namaste'

Listen to your friend, those are words of wisdom.

Stay positive and you'll make it, you're half there already anyway!

Merry Christmas!

I have to say being able to walk is a wonderful thing!!! Made it to 100% weight on my right leg yesterday (I felt so good Christmas Eve when I got up that I decided to try it a day early - was originally scheduled for Christmas Day). So, today Doug and I went for a walk on the plowed snow, complete with ski poles so I could assist my balance if necessary. Just measured the distance: 0.95 miles. Hurray!!!

AND, after the walk, I requested to go into the motorcycle shop (haven't been in since the accident, mostly because I couldn't get to it on the dang crutches). Sat on Doug's Ducati (because it has the lowest seat of all our motorcycles) and looked forward to the future!

Getting closer all the time!
