The Bio-Fit workout started with stretching and abs, then Eric moved to machines where he worked on upper body strengthening exercises. This week Tracy took time to workout along side of him. When he did situps, so did she. When he worked on weight machines, she chose others to work on. That way they both got a workout and felt good. We took another group picture with Steve in today's picture since he missed the previous picture. One thing about going through this process is that you immediately feel a friendship and bond with the other patients and families going through the same treatment program. We feel that we have new friends both in the US as well as Canada and Kuwait, and still have two more weeks to meet new families.
In the afternoon Eric had another lumbar puncture injection in the spine. That went smoothly. We briefly met one of the new spinal cord injury patients who is a quadriplegic; a young lady who is 26 years old and has a 5 year old daughter. Yesterday we met a boy who looked about 8 and is actually 18 years old and has muscular dystrophy. Each of these cases remind us that Eric could be in much worse shape than he is compared to many other people.
