As I have always said coma recovery is painfully slow, but continues nonetheless. After about a year of not being able to walk without my stick because of so many ups and downs I’m trying again to leave it at home, feeling more confident this time. I think the new pathways in the brain to my leg while walking have taken hold. By always using these functions of the brain my memory and right hand are also slowly improving. As I have consistently said we must try to use the brain as we did before coma. We will extremely slowly approach what and who we were before this experience of coma. My walking is still very staggered without the stick, it was with it too!
