This video was shot on December 19th and it really puts things into perspective for me about how unpredictable SCI’s can be. I was the happiest I’ve been in a while on the Lokomat, walking the best I’ve done yet. Fast forward 3 days and Karli convinced me to go the ER because of an extremely high fever that came out of no where. I went through a bunch of tests, and no one could figure out why I was so ill. Yesterday they sent in a doctor from infectious diseases and he confirmed I have streptococcus in my right foot. Which is a skin infection. Nothing to be too concerned about, just a couple days of IV antibiotics in the hospital. Fingers crossed I can get out for Christmas! I would like to wish all of you a wonderful time with your friends and family. Happy holidays everybody!
