Saturday April 18, 2009

First day in the new digs today and there is no resting on the weekend anymore. Lisa had PT twice and OT twice as well as Speech today. She got up and down and in and out of bed multiple times today as well as walking with her walker and the help of the therapists. She also did a variety of exercises with and without weights. She is certainly tired but this is definitely the road home!

Thank you for your support and prayers.

Jim, Josh and Melissa

  5. Dear Lisa,
    You are going to be in unbelievable shape when you finally get home. Working on the week ends never sounded like a good idea until now.
    Glad that the move went well - it sounds like they are as determined as you to get you home. Look forward to seeing you soon.
    Love, Jackie
