With my recent contact with first responders from Burke Fire and Rescue and INOVA I got a large number of positive comments on my core strength and pain tolerance from the time the Burke crowd arrived to recover me from my driveway (conscious, lucid, and able to relate events leading up to the fall) to the medical staff I encountered throughout the INOVA system who were surprised that this 66 year old fossil could lift his leg and move it around with the external fixator in place and had the arm/shoulder strength to get up/down from chairs, the Can, and bed in pretty good form - though the whole process is exhausting.
Anyway, I attribute my success to the characteristics of CF and especially your and your trainers execution of the training program. Thank you!
