A Very Good Visit

Hannah was off today so I took her and Harrison to see mom.  We had a terrific visit and she was happy to see her grandkids.

Met with a couple of her therapists, her doctor, a few of her nurses, and the psych doc.  All of them had beaming reports about mom and how well she is doing.  They plan on her coming home July 25th!!  That will be two months and three days since her accident that she's been able to be in her own home and in her own bed. 

There is still plenty of therapy to be had between and now and then, but she's doing everything in her power and in the power of the LORD to get better and back to having a normal life.  I am so proud of her and how hard she is working! 

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."  Philippians 4:13

She admitted that one of her worries before making it to rehab, was that she wouldn't be able to walk again or even do simple things.  But she's on her way to do everything as she did before.

She has a doctor's appointment tomorrow and is really hoping that he'll tell her she can put weight on her leg again.  If he does, it will really progress her therapy by leaps and bounds over the next week.  She has nine days before she goes home and we have a LOT to do to get her house ready. 

One thing is build a ramp, possibly install some hand rails, and definitely get a hospital bed set up in her guest room.  So we have much to do between now and then!

But it can be done.
