After finishing our first week at Next Steps, Mike has showed his strength and determination to move on with his recovery. Mike was put on a machine called Lokomat, which helps him walk. He accomplished 35 minutes the first day. His second time on it, the trainer asked for him to do 40 minutes but Mike pushed to 50 minutes while holding weights in his hands. Another accomplishment. The place is amazing and he’s ready for the challenge.

     Next week we’ll be starting back at Marianjoy, 2 times a week with our favorite therapist, Kelly. She had evaluated him and was very pleased that he has gained strength instead of losing it during his recovery from foot surgery. Five days a week of therapy will be exhausting for all but we need to push to get to the finish line.
