Quick Update on David

After his therapy today David told me that as he makes progress he feels more and more "tipsy." When he told his PTs that this morning they said that was a good thing that he's sensing that, because it shows a growing alertness. We just keep learning as we go! Who knew?!

Tipsy? I'm wondering if it may be something Dave is drinking before he goes to therapy. Hmmm... :)

I decided to be accurate and use his exact word, and that's what it was! :-)

I believe he actually means -- well, hmm -- "unbalanced" doesn't sound that much better, does it? Maybe "unsteady" is a better word.

It sounds strange, but although he's FEELING more unsteady he really isn't any more unsteady than he was, and what it means is a GOOD thing - I guess meaning he's getting more feedback.

Yeah. I know I just repeated what I posted, but I'm kind of processing yet.
