I’d say that today was another day with some small but incredible positive improvements in Eric’s recovery. He was in his chair this morning, and Eric pretty much decided to take his Physical Therapy session in his own hands 🙂 I told you…as soon as Eric starts recognizing what’s going on and where he is; that man is going to surprise all of us. He bent his left leg up and down, up and down. Left foot down on the floor and up on the chair again, it was pretty cool to watch. He didn’t do as good with his right leg but considering the circumstances he did great. After several attempts to get his right foot back up on the chair, he finally did it. And what do you think he did then….Eric pointed at his lips, and I swear he asked for a kiss. I guess he deserved one; he did after all manage to lift his skinny right leg up from the floor to the chair for the first time. I say skinny because he’s slowly fading away. For the people who have met Eric; I think you know why we call his legs “chicken legs”. He could be in the best shape ever but his legs would always stay skinny, just like chicken legs. It’s so hard to watch him disappear in front of me as his muscles are getting smaller, but at the same time his mind is getting stronger which is awesome.
