My Life With Cerebral Palsy - Part 4 - This Is Not a CP Post

In leiu of writing a long CP post here I thought I'd post a few pictures.  These are from 1996.  Maybe I'll actually get a post written that I think is half decent at some point, maybe not.

The casts I had were always walking casts, because the docs needed me to at least try and get up out of bed, on my feet and walking as soon as possible.  I know there was a funny pic of me covered in bulky electronics and a bunch of shiny balls during a gait analysis (on a polaroid nonetheless) but I can't find the scan of it.

I have no words for how much I hated post-surgery PT. No wonder we're such badasses now.

Ugh. Post surgery PT. I could write an entire post on that alone. But hey, we got through it right? and are better because of it!

In a lot of ways though, sports were my real PT. I am convinced that I would not be who I am today, and my legs would be in far, far worse shape if it were not for playing sports constantly.
