This is part of a series of video-clips. For the full story go to my personal website: http://www.myscirecovery.com.
This was another incredible session. In the last 3 weeks, the changes have been coming in so fast. You can see the progress since the last walking with crutches video clip, where my balance on my legs was not sufficient to move the crutches independently, and the movement was sudden and unconfident, as more of my weight is being held up by my arms and not my legs as it should be - and is beginning to be here.
Here I have to get up - the smooth motion and not leaning on the straps is still one to master - steady myself then move one crutch forward followed by same side leg, then other crutch, other leg, and so on.
Also, I'm wanting to be next to people so I can see and they can see that I am 6'2" tall, as you can see when Hratch says to the girl, "Tell him he's tall." This is a massive and very important mental shift that happened some time ago. I want to be up all the time and have people think of me as the tall Guy they knew previously and not a 4'6" person in a wheelchair.
Hratch picks up on all these things and reinforces them in every session and every exercise. Watching these videos is just as instructive for me.
