    Hello Cat and thanks for the update. Glad that some things are improving.

    Can you ask for more PT and OT? Get what you need and can tolerate. Maybe less now, more later. If it’s only 20” a day make sure they only get paid for that amount.

    So glad you checked in!

    It's a disgrace the way things come to a standstill on weekends and holidays. I agree that speaking up for more of the OT and PT would be a good idea. Sounds as if they're getting away with slacking off.

    Cat, we are all missing you. I just hope you keep getting stronger. You are very much needed here. I hope TC is doing alright and that he will be able to get over with more clothes today. How is the food there, now that you have had time to decide? I know it is not like it was in the hospital, but then you didn't feel like eating it. Hope it is good and that TC brings you some treats.

    Glad you can at least read some books and while away a few hours like that.

    Like Ann, I had started to get concerned when you didn't check back in with us.

    TC came this morning, brought clothes, tea bags, and sub sandwiches, so he got a few gold stars... Watched as the PT guy, using a regular stand lift (like the one we have at home) to get me upright....And moved from bad to wheelchair, back to regular chair, etc. All well tolerated. And then excersize with the OT lady...arm strength. Did pretty well til we got to the side to side stuff......still disorienting.

    Their goal is to get me back to where I was before this crashed.....standing 2-3 minutes supported by the stand lift, able to...while seated in my wheelchair....lean over without pitching out and summersalting out of the chair.....

    I've not heard from any doctors, no follow up or direction other than what I've been able to glean from the PT guys...so I'm just rocking along....

    Sounds like a good plan, Cat, hope they spend the full amount of time doing exercises, etc. and you can continue with some on your own when they aren't there.

    Sounds like TC is taking very good care of you too!

    Good for TC!

    I'm glad that the staff is putting forth a bit of effort towards helping you to improve. The doctors you haven't seen--would those be your regular doctors, or is this one of those places where you have to see "their" doctors?
