First, most important was moving my arm. When I moved my arm, it was my right arm, I was excited about it. “Look, I can move my arm!” And I was able to move my arm pretty quickly. And, it was honestly not until I could move my arm enough to hug my kids that I invited them in, and say “okay, you’ll can come and see me.” And, “I can hug you now.” So, that was probably one of the most important. And then, moving my leg was pretty important. I woke my wife up, “honey, I can move my leg.” She came over and she said, “are you sure you’re able to move your leg and it’s not just a spasm?” I said “no, I’m able to move it.” She goes, “Okay, well move it.” So, I moved it a little bit. I was just a wiggle, I mean it wasn’t much at all. So, she calls the doctor in—or she calls the nurse in and tells the nurse, “he’s able to move his leg.” The nurse says, “are you sure you’re able to move it and it’s not just a spasm?” I said “no, I can move it.” So I moved it for her. She goes, “Oh, my goodness! Let me get the doctor.” So, she calls the doctor. Same question from the doctor, “are you sure it’s not just a spasm?” So, I moved my leg for the doctor, and he began—stuff started coming back for me so fast that the doctor would come in, Dr. Murray, he would come in early in the morning. like 6.30 in the morning, and bang on my door. He would go, “Hey, big beau, what have you got new for me today?” Because I always had stuff new to show him.
