“If i keep my feet together i can travel about forty feet with the aid of my walker.”

“I’m doing pretty good. I can stand up with the assistance of a walker, but it is very difficult to step. I’m much better at stepping with my right foot than my left, as my left tends to drag every time. Also I never know how long my legs are going to sustain my body weight, but usually it is for about two to three minutes. If i keep my feet together i can travel about forty feet with the aid of my walker.”
