Today we watched Mom walk over 300 feet (the length of a football field!!) with her walker and light assistance from her physical therapist. Wow!
Zoey the Shih Tzu came with me and has truly helped immensely in her occupational therapy sessions. Mom has been able to grip Zoey’s new squeaky toy and move her whole left arm and fling her toy a few feet! This was great fun for both of them and we are simply amazed that her left arm and hand are starting to wake up after being paralyzed for almost 9 months.
In addition, today we worked with the physical therapist doing car transfers. It was so successful that Mark and I were allowed to drive Mom around Doylestown, got her favorite mocha frappe from McDonalds, took her home for about an hour and wheeled her in her house!!
This afternoon Mom had a lovely visit from her dear friend Marguerite Quinn who brought fresh flowers and tomatoes! She also played Bingo and won a Bingo Buck!
This evening Mark and I wheeled Mom next door and we ate a delicious Italian meal at the restaurant next to her assisted living.
This is has been a full day! Dad just flew in and arrived at the assisted living and we are enjoying visiting all together. Tomorrow we all plan to watch college football all day!
Thank you all for your continued love and prayers!!
