Four months post stroke.
I’ve moved away from hospital based physio now and hopefully will get some further prescribed physio eventually.
I still can’t walk, but I live in hope.
I can rise, at least, to a solid standing position, on a par with Marlon in Emmerdale, but don’t have the parallel bars like him. I bet he’ll be propping up the bar in the Woolpack within a fortnight.
Recently I’ve been parking my wheel chair a little further from the bed and now take a couple of wobbly steps before sitting down. It isn’t physio monitored or approved but needs must.
I don’t feel confident enough to try to walk further but have considered getting my Mrs to follow me close with the wheel chair so I can sit down fast if I feel a wobble coming on.
I still silently envy those of you who were able to leave hospital walking, but, trust me, I’ll be skipping along behind you shortly,
