Jeff Bridges: He Could Only Stand For 45 Seconds After His Illness
Before his daughter’s wedding, he, who was very weak at the time, wanted to learn to stand tall again, he told “The Independent.” Then it was only 45 seconds. Together with a trainer, he gradually tried to increase the number of steps he took while stilling his breathing. Working with the coach every day inspired him to work harder, Bridges recalls.
“Finally, one day I said, ‘Maybe I can, you know.'” And indeed, when the time came, he was able to walk his daughter down the aisle. With oxygen support, but he made it. Bridges did not even leave the father-bride dance. “It was great,” he summarizes. This moment must have been very special for everyone involved.
