Journal entry by Shawn Flynn

Carrie is still doing well with recovery and rehabilitation.  I know it's been awhile since we've posted an update, but things are pretty slow moving at this point.  She updates Facebook more frequently so you are likely following there or you can friend request her if you haven't already.    We are at Mayo now and she is at PT so I have a few minutes to check in before I get her home and myself back to work.  Carrie is still using the wheelchair most of the time, but can apply up to 50% of her weight on her right side so the walker is an option to get around the house.  We spend most of our time at home, and Mayo LOL, but have been out for a few activities.  The fun stuff includes, a couple movies, the farmers market, lunch dates, and most exciting is Woodman's.  Garrett will be home soon and we are all very excited to see him and just spend some family time together.  Carrie in particular will want to spend some time with her boy so if your considering a visit it would be best to reach out before 8/6.  Not too much after that the kids will be back in school and visitors will be very welcome.  I will need to review Carrie's needs at that time and also adjust my work schedule accordingly.  Well, I better get back to the PT area as I don't want to keep her waiting.  Beautiful day outside today so try and get outside and enjoy it.
