I have muscular distrophy,particularly "drop foot" and haven't been able to walk very far without risk of tripping over my own toes.I just got my 1st set of leg braces and what a differance it has made. For the first time sence I've lived here I took my Bon Bon,[15lb poodle] ,for a walk around the block. We both had fun. I'm thinking that maybe I can do this every day. I'm also thinking maybe I'm not as disabled as I thought. Maybe this crack in the door will lead to wider possibilities! :jig: :cb:
