    I'm back to walking...I think it was the step exercises I was trying that nailed my mobility. I will take it very slow....thought I was, but maybe even slower. Steps have been a huge challenge for years now. We are going to a water park in December. My goal is to be able to climb the stairs of at le... Read more

It's been a rough two years for that and other reasons, but I have lots to be thankful for too. Howeve... Read more
