Yes, I would do the falls on foot. It is is SO funny that you asked me that! My 4 sisters and I have been trying to get together for mos. and have given up for this year. My dtr (a veterinarian in CA invited my husband and me to go to Hamaii and asked if I thought I would do the falls. I told her reluctantly that we would not, could not go. Truly, the "cure" demands a great deal of my time and energy and I feel enormous responsibility for our animals. Being gone that long and that far is simply not acceptable to either one of us. We're weird but very, very happy in our small, exciting world. Our friends and family are always welcome here but the longest trip we take is the National show and we take our goats.- the milkers, anyway.
As for your delicious dinner, good for you! You don't do that every day and neither do I. but-- it is called "vacation". Whatever form it may take, everybody deserves one!
No, I do not ever use a cane and I have not fallen for months and months. The person I gave it to really needed it. My walker is in storage and waiting for the right person. As for PT, I really get lots of exercise: in every day is lots of walking, weight lifting, endurance...at least 3 to 4 hours. Sometimes by the end of the day, I am VERY slow but can now move BOTH feet fast enough to catch myself. And Flagyl, that wonderful, hated stuff. I am due next Mon to start my 13 th pulse ( I think 13) No, I sometimes get a little worse for a while or the same. Hard to tell sometimes. Right now, the week before or 2 weeks after, I feel GREAT! I just spent 2 hours working outside clinbing fences, wrestling 4' by 8' pieces of old aluminum roofing that we put up for windbreaks in the winter on the barn and yes, I did it by myself, unless you count the help from the goats.
2010 5 years 4 months Now on Amoxicillin, Doxy, Rifampin, Azith, and caffeine in addition to flagyl. 90% normal good days-50% normal bad days. That is a good thing.
