He is also starting to get a little bit of feeling in the lower parts of his right leg. It's coming back, little by little, bit by bit.
Garren is really having fun with his power wheelchair. He calls it his "baby." The feeling of being able to propel himself must be exhilarating.
Today Garren tried out a new machine, called a Locomat. It's like a big treadmill, with robotic attachments around his legs and a harness that hold him up. The robotic attachments move his legs as if he is walking. The idea is to retrain the muscles how they are supposed to move when you walk. He walked in it for about 8 minutes, and it really wiped him out. It's quite the contraption!
We are scheduled to go home next Friday. We continue to be amazed at what God has done and is doing in and through Garren.
