Monday April 20, 2009

More of the same! Another day of work for Lisa. She had PT twice, OT twice and speech (swallowing)today. More standing, sitting and walking with the help of the walker and therapists. In addition, a full routine of exercise just in case she has any energy left. She is feeling the effect with lots of aches and pains, but these too are signs of progress.

Thank you for all of the support, encouragement and prayers.

Jim, Lisa and Josh


  1. Hi Lisa,
    In this case aches and pain show that you are working your muscles and that is just what you need to get stronger. Before you know it you will be kick boxing. I'm sorry the food doesn't taste good but at least it is something to swallow. We are getting closer to having our coffee and scones. I can't wait!

  2. Hi Lisa,
    Sounds very tiring, you need to come back to work and rest! I'm so glad to hear you are doing well. Thanks Stephensons for taking such good care of her and for letting us all know how things are going. Lisa, I think you'll be ready for aerobics with my class very soon!
    Hang in there, you are doing great.
    Love, Tracy Hall

  3. Hi Lisa,
    You know what they say, no pain no gain! You are making such great "gains" it's hard to believe! A lesser woman might have given up :) You never cease to amaze us all. Thank you, Lisa, for this wonderful example you have been setting for us. Lots of love to you and your family, Leslie

  4. Dearest Lisa and Family,
    Keep positive thoughts--each therapy session takes you closer to being sprung from there! All the hard work is paying off--look how far you have come!
    Prayers and positive energy continue to go out to all of you, as well as much love from Monica
