My biggest milestone would be my fingers, because when I first started, everything was very tight.  And it started with a wiggle.  And from there, it started to progress, and I knew at that point, that’s how the rest of muscles and body were going to work.  It’s always going to start with a wiggle here, a wiggle there.  I’ve always been a big Lego guy, and I guess I’ve always been a big kid at heart.  So after my injury—I hadn’t played with Legos since I was ten—I decided, “You know what, they have all these cool Legos out there, and it’s going to be great way for me to have therapy.”  So, I decided, “Why not?  Just do it.”  And, I starting building and building them, and I got to all these bigger ones, and I was like, “This is awesome now.” And now, we’ve kind of run out of room in parts of my house because of the Legos.  It was great development for my fingers.
