The weekend rolls around again, and Jon sweet talked the therapists into allowing him to have some therapy again this weekend. I was at home with the kids most of the day, so once again I will let Jon do the talking, and I'll just type.
My walking continued but with at twist today. For the first time they had me use a "hemi" walker, which is a walker you can use with just one hand. I walked the length of the gym and back four times, with almost no assistance (they are still having to keep my knee in place so it doesn't give way when I walk)! I also did a few new arm exercises and feel like I am slowly developing more movement in my arm.
I'm not looking forward to tomorrow, since I don't have any therapy, but I should have some more visitors, and that is always nice. I had more visits from good friends already this weekend, which is always enjoyable. The kids and the in-laws are coming by tomorrow, so that will be fun too. I expect (and hope) to sleep well tonight after another strenuous day in therapy!
And we are enjoying our new and larger room!
Okay, now it's back to the Brenda narration. I need to tell Jon he needs to spice his comments up a bit! But overall it's been another good week. We found out this week that Jon's tentative discharge date is July 5, which seems like a long way off, but we need to stay here as long as he's making progress and improving. It does mean spending Father's Day, his birthday and the 4th of July here, but we can handle that.
We won't update again until Monday, hopefully with even better news. And we do appreciate all of our followers. We hope this blog is helpful in keeping everyone updated.
