    thanks for the comments! last night I stood up with almost no effort at all!

    I'm getting a rock climbing harness for the parallel bars. kinda like a baby using a walker, so i don't have to worry about falling.

    Cdog,
    Great news, they would not let me use the parrell bars at the first rehab hospital I was at, and I was pissed. the second one I was at got me up and walking in a walker, not too pretty, but they insisted on the proper way to walk. Today I walk in a walker or for the most part a cane, getting around, yeah it's tough but it is better than what any one ever expected. Keep on pushing, this will be you're big fight from now on, don't give in.
