Well, the world didn’t end. In fact, in our lives, it’s just beginning.
We’ve both been working out a lot, getting stronger everyday. Bri set Nick up with a home workout for his legs. It took him an hour and a half to complete it today.
Nick’s been feeling pretty good lately, even though phantom pain and sensations have been fucking with him. But he rarely complains. I know he’s just so grateful to be up on his feet and moving forward with life again. He knows how blessed he is to be walking with a spinal cord injury as severe as his. He doesn’t take his miraculous recovery for granted, he’s still working hard everyday to get more back. I think there will always be room for him to grow and get stronger. He can never stop. What it takes for Nick to just maintain the level of movement he’s gained, is like an able-bodied person training for an Iron Man.
