Hello friends. You haven't heard from me since June. I broke my leg in June and had to have surgery. I'm fine now, but when I was on hospice I lost so much muscle mass I couldn't walk. I went to a nursing Gome after surgery and I'm no longer on hospice because I'm getting physical therapy and occupational therapy so I am doing better. I have been using the site to stand lift to get out of bed. I'm learning to walk. I took 6 steps today. Next I will learn to pivot to get in wheelchair and bedside commode, but that will take time. I hope you haven't forgotten me. I love all my old friends. Sallly

Jim Jen, I'm getting way better. Before I had any function I got up with the Hyatt lift. That is a net they put under your body and it lifts you. Now I'm on a site to to stand lift. They diaper me on the lift before I go to bed. I am incontinent because I can't walk or stand by myself.

Hi Kristin. I'm healed. My nerves in my feet and legs are beginning to wake up. I get electrical stimulation 5 days a week.

@OreoBrownie I also can`t remember along time ago since it was really in a different style and many posts to comments like a market without control but now it was improved and I can see the site is more better for a good interactions

I'm glad to hear from you too. I've gone from hospice to being fairly independent. I can shower myself now and sit on the side of the bed by myself and toilet every 2 hours. I do have accidents.

@OreoBrownie Twice actually, not a broken leg. But I had knee surgery on my left knee and that took a while to walk again and then I had blood clots in my right leg and had some damage to my hip with that that made it very hard to walk

@DesirousDreamer so sorry you had to go through that. It's not easy to recover. I have 2 artificial knees. They are like my own now I have had them since 01 and 03.
