New improvements from the second stem cell treatment: I can move my toes 10 times easier now, used to have to focus all my energy to just move them a little bit! Hopefully the ankle will be next! I can also reach down to pick things up from the floor now without losing balance or falling, so my core muscles and leg strength have improved as well 👍 The leg is warmer all the time now and not so cold, so better circulation as well. I still have until December to see more improvements so I'm very hopeful!

I have gotten a lot more core strength and balance, I feel very stable now, like I won't ever fall again! I can even almost bend down to pick things up from the floor now! In physical therapy I used to fall over just by a finger pushing against me if I was not holding onto anything.

New improvements from the second stem cell treatment: I can keep my bad foot on this machine now without strapping it on or someone holding it in place, it used to just slip right off!(I can't kick it back very far on my own yet though) I can also move my toes a lot better and my leg has less spasms and stiffness so I can move it easier now :)

Starting to notice some improvements already from the second treatment! I can now move my right knee side to side while laying down against gravity, without it falling over to one side or using my hands to help :)

I am looking forward to seeing what improves next :)

No more headaches! I have been feeling great since the last injection, not even any back pain! Yesterday I got together with everyone and continued filming a lot more footage for the stem cell documentary. My pals AJ and Kyle who I met here are also going through the treatment and are a part of the documentary as well. We all went to the gym to workout together and then after the filming we had dinner. I can't believe there's a Buffalo Wild Wings right next to the hotel!! One of my all time favorite places to eat, and they happened to have one here and within walking distance!!

Today I had my final visit to the Stem Cell Institute. Got my last spinal injection and IV infusion, as well as my final medical evaluation and discharge recommendations. It's very exciting to see that I received even more stem cells this time in 2 weeks, than last time I was here for a month!

I am so relieved all the injections are over with and I get to go home tomorrow! The hard part is just beginning though, the next 6 months will be a lot of work everyday but improvements could happen at any time! I will continue to post on here each time I notice a new change. I am very thankful I had the opportunity to return for a second treatment, and have a lot of hope for the future :)
