Day 919 - Dec 4, 2010

Today was a pretty good day. We are both starting to feel better and it's about time. I spent the better part of the day getting more unpacked and organized. I also cooked a nice dinner and Breezy and Chris came over to eat and then we all put up the Christmas tree. Kevin wasn't there to help though because he went for a walk. He went for two today - in the hopes that he will lose some weight. I keep telling him it's more what and how much he eats and drinks, but he isn't willing to go so far as to cut back on that, lol.

He is doing great on the walking too. He didn't take his cane either time and he probably walks between 30-45 minutes each time. His stamina is getting better and better and his balance is too. It's unbelievable how well he is taking the step up onto the sidewalk now. He still has to stop and 'ready' himself to do so, but he doesn't have to use anything anymore to push himself up. I will have to try to remember to take some video soon.

And that's really about it today. I never left the house and Kevin only did so while walking. He wanted to ride his bike tonight, but I won't allow it while it's dark out. Tomorrow is another day though, right?

So hard to believe and so wonderful to see how far your Kevin has come. The man seems determined to progress and as long as that continues he will. I'm thinking the stronger his brain gets, the stronger his will gets.....

PS: Keep forgetting to tell you that all your mentions of stromboli - which I'd never heard of - prompted me to look for a recipe. Then saw some in the frozen food section. It was tasty but I think I need to make it fresh!
