Working so hard

I have worked so hard, for so many months. I exercise sometimes 6 or 7 hours a day, only to learn today that extreme weakness in my left leg may be caused by damaged nerves from the broken back I suffered. THAT sucks.

Otherwise, things are progressing. I got a script today for my new "leg". Its a Ceterus, with a gorgeous blue ball for an ankle. More importantly, an ankle that moves somewhat. Its not as progressed as the guys, but its an important first step for me.

I try, like every soldier and Marine being treated here, to celebrate the progress and not let the setbacks get me down. It is harder work than all of the physical therapy combined.
