So I thought I better update, many of you already know from the Facebook posts but we did get Gail home on the 23rd. Her first week home has been really good, it’s also been a really good challenge but we are figuring things out. She still is getting her pt and ot that come to our home, started some speech therapy today, all may be for another 4-6 weeks. Since she is a couple months ahead of her goal of getting home by Christmas I told her that her new goal should be to walk without her walker by Christmas, well on Tuesday pt had her practicing walking (no walker) she did awesome!! so I believe that goal will be attainable also, praise God!! Gail continues to improve with her speech and memory, also amazing stuff!
On the 18th we were in StCloud for a visit with Dr Kennedy, her Neuro-surgeon, he was quite pleased with her progress. We will be weaning her off the anti-seizure medication so that will be a good thing! We don’t go back now until the end of February or March at twelve months from the day, than we will know more about what things will be permanent. So lots can change in 4 months, God’s not done yet!!!
The manor had a pretty big send off for Gail, put on a cap and gown like graduation and had her walk through a crowd of nurses and staff! It was the best!!! And then like her therapist predicted, she walked out of there!! We are soo thankful and grateful for the care that she received, new appreciation for what they do!!
Bye for now, it’s kind of hard finding time to update but I will try my best!! Love you all!! His will, His way, ALWAYS!!
