Day 6 of rehabilitation and our moods are good.There is an air of positivity about the place culminating in a wonderful moment.For the first time in eleven and a half months I stood in my new legs…and walked.

A moment filled with intrepidation,fear and sheer delight. The moment then turned to minutes.Then minutes turned to walking without guide rails and then to walking around the gym without help.

It’s nearly a year since Strep A tried to take my life and it has felt like a constant battle against all kinds of obstacles and problems ever since.The last five and a half days have changed that.Today is a small victory and one I will never ever forget.
