Whooooo- hoooo! The x-ray of my spinal bone looks great! I can lift 25 lbs, I can crawl if I keep my back arched (look out Elia, the race is now on), I can bend and twist with moderation- mostly using my knees! I can walk as much as tolerated. My therapy starts Friday. My only disappointment: I have to wean the brace over next 7 days. I can only have it off 1 hour today, 2 tomorrow, etc. And my weakness may remain as much as a year yet😝. He said he made me better but not new🤔. Ron is delighted because he can go back to work.
