Today was swimming. I was a ‘water baby’ before this brain thing as you know so swimming is a very satisfying exercise for me to do and its always fantastic! Today was super great cause my ‘usually crap’ left leg was not so crap, I told it to bend, it bent. I told it to move left and right – It moved in both directions. I told it to step backwards, IT WALKED BACKWARDS. So basically it was acting appropriately however I commanded.

And to top it all off the swimming teacher let me swim a length or two on my own! Just staying close to assist me to lift my head to get air!
