So besides eating great food, I've been busy getting back into therapy. I did take about 14 weeks off because of a pressure sore that I needed to get healed up. Pressure sores are no joke! Even though the sore was in a spot where I technically should not be able to feel, I could definitely feel it. The sore felt like I had a hot coal on it all the time. So finally, it's healed up and I'm ready to go! Right now I'm going up to Walk The Line to SCI Recovery therapy every Monday and will begin going up on Thursday as well at the beginning of the year. Even though I took a long time off to heal the sore, when I started back a month ago, the trainers noticed that actually felt stronger than when I left. I guess the time off was good for my body! My core strength has been much stronger, and I'm able to set up and balance on my own at the edge of the table. And not just sitting, but sitting up straight with my head up! Sounds so simple, but the smallest things for me are huge victories. I'm still accumulating some pictures, so when I get a good one. I'll be sure to post it.
To keep the process going at therapy, last year Team Bigelow put on a small fundraiser raffle. This year we're raffling off a XBOX ONE with Kinect to anyone that is interested. This Xbox will do it all! Not just video games, but will control your Netflix, Hulu, Blu-ray DVDs, and even the Internet.
Tickets are 1 for $10, 3 for $25, or 5 for $40 and will be available through tomorrow evening at 5pm. The drawing will take place tomorrow, Sunday December 21st around 6 p.m.
I wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season! Thanks to everyone for the thoughts and prayers. I am truly blessed!
