My insurance was approved for me to continue my physical therapy for a while longer. I am breathing a big sigh of relief. I have hope I will be able to hike again some day, and walk really fast if I wanted too. I can feel my ankle getting stronger, sometimes. I still need to fight to get my occupational therapy approved. I have not given up hope that I will use my left hand and fingers again. I might have to find my own therapy routine, but I can do it.
Tomorrow, I go find out if anything can be done to lower my blood pressure. It is still running at unsafe levels (for having another stroke). I need to up my activity level to lose more pounds, I have been hovering in the same range since summer.
