First Steps Outside After TBI: March to a Different Beat
On July 18th, 2011 (1 year ago) I walked outside for the first time since the accident. I used a walker on the front ramp of Mount Sinai. Here’s a video of that along with a response to this video sent by my mom. This email was written to my mom by my aunt Debbie, who is a nurse practitioner and was a midwife for most of her professional career.

Thank you, God, for a brain and a spinal cord!! This is sooooo life affirming. No wonder you have a source of strength. This is huge for 3 weeks. He had just gotten into a wheelchair when I saw him 3 weeks ago. Huge strides! He is an athlete! Tell Cavin to skype me tomorrow.
