A quick update.
 
Things are still going well - every day I can do a bit more.  I've been staying in the CPM machine 6+ hours a day and have even been able to top the 8 miserable hours in the rack Dynasplint.

Yesterday, I'm so happy to report, I took my first steps!  One crutch, putting my heel down and walking.  My leg still isn't fully straight - and it's still up in the air whether it ever will be - but every night in the Dynasplint helps and I'm still only putting 2 lbs pressure at 8 hours/night - eventually we'll move gradually up to 4 lbs pressure; so there's still hope I'll get much straighter.  But taking those first few steps really felt like a breakthrough to me.  I imagine what it will be like to walk crutch-free - how amazing!
 
I am also able to lift my leg again - after surgery I wasn't able to lift it or move it much without using my hand to force and guide it.  That happened after the first surgery as well, but as of today I can move it, lift it, swing it to the side - it hurts like the dickens, but that will go away.
 
So all's well so far.  Just wanted to let you know.  I don't get on here much because it's 6/hours or more a day in one and 8/hours or more in the other - so I'm in bed a lot.  But I'm doing well!  Keep thinking of me!!
