It was one month ago today that Michael had this latest stroke. He is doing great at UF Health Rehab Hospital. He is scheduled to come home now on the 28th. Today he walked over 100 feet with a walker. He did a super job with speech therapy in recognizing pictures. He has been very tired so he is getting the rest he needs, but he is also being pushed pretty good with therapy which is fine by us. The more he gets the better he will be when we welcome him home. His case manager has found an agency to staff a caregiver while we are working. We are very thankful for that answered prayer.
Today we also enjoyed a fun Father’s Day celebration. This is the second Father’s Day in a row that Michael has been in a facility. Last year Dennis sat on a patio and looked at Michael through the door and they talked on their cell phones. At least this year they are next to each other. Next year the goal is to celebrate at home!
