guess who came home today???
Mom says this is the best welcome home gift...
Melrose sleeping next to her
first time ever he did that with her
or anyone but me for that matter!
he spent a lot of time fussing with her...
getting up on her chair at the kitchen table
(while she was in it)
generally keeping an eye on her
Olivia was her normal self
she'd look around the corner for a while
zoom through the room
then back to peeking at us
from behind furniture...
physical therapy at home will start soon
as soon as tomorrow
she is doing very good with walking
what she is not allowed to do
no bending over
no crossing her legs
I've been getting more rest
and generally decompressing
working on lowering my blood sugar
with more exercise - less stress
using Lumosity brain games
for some mental exercise
Dad is having a rough time...
he did get fitted for a new wheelchair today
he has very long legs
so none of the miserable chairs at the facility
work good for him
I got to choose the colors...
the frame is yellow
seats are black
Why you might ask?
his first new car was a 1965 Buick Skylark
yellow body - black roof
I have many wonderful memories of that car
the wheelchair will be a real conversation piece
