A good look at how long his back scar is. To think, only five months ago they had him face down for 13 hours, wide open from end to end of that scar, repairing his badly broken vertebrae. Now here he is up on his feet, walking again! Truly a miracle. And those two nobs sticking out on his lower back? Those are two of the bolts holding his spine together with his hip bone.
Are they stretching? Or is Bill playing air guitar on Nicks leg?
Trick or Treat, smell my… never mind, I don’t have feet.
Nick Fener, while driving past a group of trick or treaters on Halloween night
Squeeze! Working the adductor muscles of his inner thighs. They are much stronger than his outer thighs.
Nick is sore. Really sore. The good kind of sore though. The “I just did Bootcamp after not exercising for the last two years” sore. The “I can’t even sit on the toilet because I did too many squats and lunges” sore. The “I don’t have any freakin’ feet but I’m learning to walk again anyway” sore. He’s pushing himself, but not going overboard. He swam today, lifted weights and did about 15 laps on the parallel bars. Soreness is inevitable.
He’s getting more comfortable on his new stilts. Yet I think I spoke too soon about the sockets not hurting, because today the right one was bothering him a little. This is exactly why we already have another appointment set up to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. That’s in 10 days. Then we’ll see Phil again a month after that as well.
Show off! The second time using his parallel bars and he briefly let’s go of one hand.
