Wally seems to be regaining feeling in his back half, and with it he appears to be gaining a modicum of control over his waste functions - although only in the "not quite so leaky" sort of way, and not in the "total control" way that we're hoping will return. Which means he continues to visit the clinic twice a day for catheterization, which is getting to be
With the returning feeling (and some improvement in muscle strength and a wee bit of motion in his upper legs), he seems not to want to stand today for the extended periods of time he achieved yesterday - his best time was in excess of 6 minutes. I thin he's feeling more sensation from it, although perhaps not full sensation, and he's not certain he likes it. On the other hand, he's started sinking into something much closer to a normal sitting position than we've seen since this happened, so we are not too worried about it just yet.
Many thanks to all of you for your continued expressions of support. It has meant a lot to me this week, and will continue to be a help over what is looking to be a lengthy recovery process.
