Detail

JetstarDear fellow coma victims, determination doesn’t amount to much without the detail. While being determined to walk again you must also do so correctly. There are so many subtleties to walking that have been forgotten by the brain as it builds a new pathway and these too must be relearned. I just try to copy my good leg, heel then toe and my toes still permanently point upwards. I suspect that it is only because I try to copy the good leg that it’s gradually improving. In the beginning I didn’t make sure I was walking properly and it never really improved but seems to be getting better now that I try to copy the good leg in every way. Also having been there recently I must mention that the Melbourne airport is the worst I have ever been to. So hard to find your gate and it has no view of the planes, the most impressive thing about airports. A most confusing airport. I needed to ask a worker directions to gate 12, it was actually down several corridors from the terminal and there were no signs. It was a good place when I was young but terrible now, such a simple place to arrange. Perhaps the many extra steps back and forth improved my walking…

Recovery

1501326819097-860fa890-5ca5-4c9c-85b0-ecda5e14e9bfThere are several posts here by the title, ‘recovery’, this will be the last. I now have a date for my recovery from coma, my father’s funeral 30/7/2017. It would have been unthinkable during my time in hospital for me to write and delivery a speech to so many people and also to try and answer their obscure questions. My father’s remembrance acknowledged a most excellent life. I think I have posted the very eulogy I delivered, not exactly,  I ad-libbed. It was indeed a celebration of a life well lived. To hear other speeches about him also stimulated my memory, I could remember his honesty and sincerity that all spoke of. I thought to include a link where my speech is in the first video . . .
