On the FES bike. 

All wires and sticky electrode pads. 
It fires electric impulses and makes my leg muscles fire up in turn to turn the pedals of the bike. 
Weird seeing my once toned and proud leg muscles contracting artificially. 
It slows wastage, improves circulation  and can bring stuff back to life for SOME people. 
Not for me as yet. 
Two lovely lads, Phil and Barry, ex patients, called in to see me last night   
I only know them via a Facebook group. 
BOTH were told they’d never walk again , and both now can, fairly well. 
Never give up hope they said. 
I wish I could see some/any sign of improvement. 
There isn’t any. 
Thanks boys, for the encouragement though. 
I meet some very generous people these days.
