Here is some news of my progress. I continue to do my exercises daily and now feel much more independent. At home I am able to do everything I mean the chores, (I had great difficulty just a few months ago). This morning I drove up the road and did my own shopping without the need to ask someone to go with me. I am even looking after my grandson (7 months old) without any difficulty. I do not walk around carrying him, but am able to transfer him from the bed to the push chair and feeding chair. My advice is to keep the muscles strong and the right attitude. Always try to improve what you can and count your blessings, focus on what is good. Do not be a victim, I say I am practising to be victorious.
