Rinpoche circumambulates 3 times a day the relics for 30 mins. This requires no encouragement at all ... it's done with enthusiasm! Then needs to rest ... which is the same after each physio therapy session. Now Rinpoche needs only a little support when walking short distances , longer distances a wheel chair is needed.
Last Thursday after the brace was fitted to Rinpoche's right leg by the Prosthetist Orthotist ... Rinpoche said "when I came back from having the brace fitted I had a rest and dreamt of His Holiness, after the dream I was able to move 3 fingers (right hand) that I wasn’t able to move before and also I could read mantras quicker, so a little bit better, slight, but can’t tell how long". This was good news as not much was happening with the right arm, now there is a little more movement in certain directions ... still a long way to go with the arm.
Speech is also slowly improving ... still a slur. With all the exercises for leg, arm and speech it doesn't take long for Rinpoche to tire ... for the short time before tiring he does well, then tiredness sets in and the excises become difficult as no strength.
Rinpoche has not started acupuncture or Chinese medicine ... saying according to his mo seems need to delay a little longer before starting.
I would think now we will settle into a routine for the next month or 2 focusing on the physio and lots of rest.
