Thanks for asking, 8pla.
I’m recovering well, actually. I’m walking again (AND driving!), and for the most part, I don’t even need to use a cane.I still “walk funny”, and will for a long time yet, but that’s really a very minor thing. I’ve been posting my progress on Facebook with text and videos, so that my family and friends can see how I’m doing. My cousin, Linda, who was one of the people I was going to go visit when the accident occurred, plans on being with me on a 5k run at some future point, and I’m actually looking forward to it. In fact, I want to go for that run (and I DO mean run) on the 1 year anniversary of the wreck.
About the only thing that mars my recovery is the fact that my right elbow is permanently locked at about a 60 degree angle, and will never move again. My right hand and wrist still work fine, but I’ll never be able to bring my hand to my head again, so scratching my right ear, or palming my forehead to say “Doh!” is now a bit more challenging, but overall, that’s a VERY tiny price to pay, all things considered.
If you get a chance to check out my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/dave.morton.3950?ref=tn_tnmn) there are not only my status reports, but also lots of pictures. I encourage everyone to do so, and friend me if you like.
