Neil's rehab team meets every Wednesday to discuss his progress and plan for any changes to his program. The outcome today was that everyone is very pleased. Dr. Galang used the term "leaps and bounds" to describe the speed at which Neil has advanced, but reminded us that this is still a long road we're on. The biggest concerns for Neil right now are his ability to speak and to use his left arm. Down the road our concerns ...well, we'll just wait and see what we have to be concerned about then. At present, we'll just leap and bound along with Neil!
Walking continues to be a progressive skill for him. Neil only needs one assistant now, to help with balance. Although he still struggles a little with his left foot, he can use it so much better than before. They've even had him walking up a few steps with some help. Looks like we won't be needing to renovate the house for wheelchair access when he comes home :-) Maybe they'll work on his snowboarding skills next.
