Tom, I'm happy to hear you are making some progress with the medical issues. Life throws us a nasty curve ball once in a while that just sucks the life out of us. It is only through determination that we fight back to regain the life we desire. Thoughts are with you, and hoping your progression continues to be rewarding.

Thomas, remember this: Running a marathon starts with the first step. Not the one at the beginning of the race but the one that starts the training. Keep working my friend. it is all worth it. Plus that lighted keyboard will be nice down the road!
Thank you all for the support. This week sofar we have walked on balancing and arms / shoulders. My balance is still way off and cant lift more then two pound weights above my shoulders. I went for a drivers release today and was told not yet. Hint the wife's driving scares me. My Heart rate is an issue as well. Its hanging out about 110 beats a min. Justt got the first bill and thank lord for insurance. the first bill was 140000.00. The care I rrecieved was the best and They were all great other then meing strapped to the bed. Was told I was trying to escape while I was incoherent.
American Medical insurance money is not like real money. It's like chips at the poker table.....they argue and threaten each other and end up settling for 10 cents on the dollar and everybody feels like they got a good deal. The hospitals negotiate with the insurance companies in Aruba or Cancun and the both laugh all the way to the bank. If you want to know more, you should probably tune in to the O/T forum, because it gets pretty partisan... Let's just say that if FieroThomas did not have insurance he may have been able to check out of the place for $29.95.
Tom, Did they ever give you a confirmed diagnosis on what caused you problems? It is very good to hear that you are still on the road to recovery, it may be long, but I hope it continues at a steady pace. Sometimes I wonder why I even check this forum anymore, but it is posts like these that remind me that there really are good people left in this world. Good luck with the recovery.

Hello all just a small update. I have to wait 6 weeks to be able to drive. I have two and a half weeks before I can get into a car. Wife's driving scares me. LOL I have been discharged from physical therapy but have to continue to do the works, My legs are getting there and my upper body is still pretty week. I am down to one nap a day depending on what I do. I am feeling better every day but still wish I could do things like before. but in time I will. To just add to it my wife's car died with an engine failure. This will be the first car I ever junk. Ran great and on the way to the doctors boom it went at 55 mph. Only had 107,000 miles on it. Thanks again for all the support. On the bright side I am in the process on replacing all my sewing and other equipment to start making things again like Visors. Fieronews 2.0 is right around the corner in a few weeks.
