Doing Better


I know it is hard to see the positive every day, but it must be done. I am two months post surgery and I am seeing improvements every day. I have gone from using a walker to using one cane around the house and am getting stronger every day. I still have bad days, but they are getting fewer. If we can see an improvement of 1% each day, that is a win. I am doing physical therapy two times a week and supplement it with self therapy every day. Stretching and physical exercise is the key. We should never give up! Thanks for everyone that posts and keep up the good fight.



Thank you for your positive post. I am surely in this fight to win it! My AVM has definitely slowed me down, but it has not stopped me. I am not quitting! I’m taking things one step at a time. I wish you continued progress.
