Getting Stronger!

by on August 3, 2010

I just finished my PT session and was able to walk on the treadmill at 1.5 mph with a 5% grade for about 5 minutes with my body weight supported with a harness and walked for a total of 20 minutes at 1.2-1.5mph from 0-5% grade and really didn’t huff and puff too much -I was actually able to talk with the PT without getting short of breath! My endurance and strength is definitely getting better – just wished this dizziness would get better at the same rate! Now I’m pretty much up most of the day, but I definitely still need a lot of breaks (especially lying down) but at least I’m not in bed most of the time! I’m trying to get back into a daily routine since Kandice will be starting 1st grade at the elementary school just down the street on Aug 25 – I’m planning to walk her to and from school as much as I can – I’m also looking into starting to do some work – not as a treating therapist since I can barely keep myself balanced but possibly consulting or something – anyone have any suggestions? I’m thinking it would be good to work part-time as a consultant or possibly continue doing wheelchair assessments but I’m open to doing different things since I think I’m getting strong enough where I can work on a part-time basis – I just have to look into it a little more.

    Satomi-

    So glad to hear of your improvement. I have been following Sean’s posts for the last year. I have been praying for you recovery. I hope you can find some kind of consulting work.
