Doing what the doctor ordered.

I am so proud of my husband.  I wrote a month ago saying that our doctor wanted my husband to walk for 15 minutes a day, with a cane.

I really thought he would go back to his old habits, and getting on a machine, and then be hurting, but that’s not the case.  He started walking around the entire gym twice.  Then he got up to 3 times.  This week he is managing 4 times.  He doesn’t do it all at once, but over the time we are there.

The doctor said that this will strengthen his legs, and he will be less likely to be wheelchair bound.

  1. So happy he is trying and it’s so true he will strengthen up and be more able!! At my stables we have older horses, some with lameness issues with stiffness and arthritis. With some pain meds, the best medicine is walking!! It’s what has kept my horses going. So likewise, it makes sense how important movement is and I hope he gets stronger everyday!! Tell him we are proud of him! Kindly, Diana ❤️
