Thank you for all the prayers that have been offered on our behalf. We have felt them carrying us thru. Keep on praying that Mom can continue to improve and that we can accept God's plan.
So tomorrow, the plan is for Dad to take Mom home to their house! It feels like a big step.
Mom has spent almost 6 weeks at Riverview Health Centre.The time at Riverview has been a very good experience. The workers and therapists are very positive and helpful. The atmosphere is very warm and caring. A number of staff and residents have stopped by to say goodbye.
Mom has done many hours of therapy. Usually 3 half to one hour appointments each day. A new part of her brain has to be taught how to do the tasks she so easily did before.
Now Mom is mostly able to care for herself. She can walk quite well with a walker for shorter distances. Her hand and arm have movement but are not always dependable. It's hard to watch your Mom struggling with the tasks that your preschoolers are learning to do!
We are grateful that Mom is ready to come home now. We realize there will be challenges ahead as things are still quite different than they were before the stroke.
