Just a quick check-in. Things are going pretty well, although at a snails pace. I know, I know–baby steps. But progress is being made. Jim can now do transfers by himself from bed to chair and back. Pretty great considering he’s been flat for so long. He’s also started working on lifting his legs. Just started that, so no great progress to report. It’s a little disconcerting to see him looking so well, but knowing there is so far to go.
Sorry it’s blurry. I forgot my camera and had to resort to my phone.
We got some definite news though. He can put weight on his left leg Oct. 1st, and on his right leg Oct. 18th. As I said last week, he’s now using his right wrist. (That’s how he’s doing the transfers.)
He’ll come home at the end of this rehab (don’t know when that will be) then go back when he can start walking. At least I think that’s the plan. They keep you a little in the dark about this. We will have a meeting with Dr., rehab, nurse, social worker before too long and I expect I’ll know then.
Once again, thank you for the kind wishes and prayers. You are a force!
