Miraculous X-Ray Vision

Today, I feel so successful. At my post-op visit in San Francisco, Dr. Kiest had me take my first steps today without the walker. Just like a proud father, he moved my walker to the side and asked me to stand up. As he stood in front of me, he reached out his hands toward mine and asked me take a step, and then another, and another. Dr. Kiest's eyes widened, as did mine, and we both grinned with childlike joy and enthusiasm. He held onto my hands after a few steps, then gently guided my turn back toward the table as I balanced and took those few steps back to the patient table. What a miraculous day! I felt like a proud child, who was just learning how to walk, and with a fatherlike response he said, "now I'm going to continue to be like a mother hen watching you and guiding you through your road back to recovery. Never force or struggle." Last week it was all about learning how to scoot, this week, it's all about learning how to take one step at a time. I came home after a wonderful afternoon with my dear friend Wendy Bayless, and then took my long, long, afternoon nap. I cry with joy. Wah! Such a fun day!
