No postings for more than a week. I've been focusing exclusively on the exercises and building up to this - MOWING THE LAWN. A normally 40 minute job was spread over two sessions over 24 hours. Who would ever think that slipping on ice could be so disabling!
Daily arm and shoulder lifts have now added a small weight to the misery: that's real progress. 40 lifts a day have gone up to 120-160 but there's still a great deal to do. Stair climbing is getting better, too.
