i got up a few times more. i couldnt stop laughing.the head injury makes me laugh and cry. i hate that.i have some medicine but dont want to take it all the time. i walked today without the cane. don stayed beside me. i think walking the pond and treadmill everyday really helps. as for the hand its slow but i can slowly empty it. i i cant completely lift it yet.you never realize how much you need both hands.who would have ever thought id become a lefty.but walking without the cane will help me do stuff with the left eventually.
