My husband Hugh, Night #70, Critically Injured, Now in Rehab

I know I haven't written, but to be honest, there isn't much to say in way of progress except that Hugh is the same.

He is starting to transfer from wheelchair to bed by himself, no board, as well as standing up in a walker (with much assistance) and taking some steps.

After meeting with another orthopedic doctor last week about Hugh's knee/leg he thought it a good idea Hugh follows up with a nerve test to see if he has spinal damage as his feet/ankles are so weak. Well, that was done today, and he has full nerve damage in the right leg which is, well permanent. Hugh will walk with braces. As to how the damage was done, well, could be spinal damage or due to his pelvis fracture. They do not know this at this time. He has foot drop/neuropathy (which we knew) just didn't know he has full nerve damage in the right leg.
