I had my last consultation with Dr. Zeegers today, before our flight home on Monday. That's him in the picture with me. Everything is going well. The weakness in the left leg is much better and hardly noticeable.
I also picked up some pain meds from the pharmacy for the 16-hour (including layovers) flight home, just in case.
Then I had physical therapy. I had been having some difficulty getting up from sitting, but today's therapist showed my some spine/pelvic rolling exercises, right at the end of our session, which helped immensely. I wish they had shown me the first day. After doing them I stood right up as if my back was normal. Amazing.
