I only have positive comments to say. Michele looks and feels great. She is doing physical therapy twice daily and is elevating what she can do. She now can do some leg exercises like kicking a ball, stair simulation, throwing and catching and a lot more core strengthening exercises. Before long she will be kicking Steveie D:). With all of her therapy she is just withering away to nothing - almost like a Sports Illustrated model. Sam - she needs your good cooking!
Many of you who read this blog have been in and have seen her - tell us your stories.... I have not been able to visit as much as I would like since I am getting over a cold. Her room looks lovely with all the Fishman balloons, the many cards, bears and flowers. It really is a nice environment and she has her room to herself which is good for her steady flow of much welcomed visitors:).
The wound vac. has been removed permanently , now its just a matter of time for the wound on her leg to heal. Everything is very positive but know your visits keep her spirits up! The new washer and dryer were ordered and should be installed today sometime so Stevie D. now has the proper tools. Euzoa Bible Church is preparing a helper's calendar that I will give you the website to as soon as it is up and running. If there is a big snow this week I am sure Steve could use someone to plow his deck. He was supposed to have shoulder surgery on the 23rd of December, but he had a pressing engagement.
If you have a story you would like to tell and are following the blog but not logged in to leave comments, just e-mail me at MichelleDiehl@comcast.net and I will post your story. Even if it doesn't have anything to do with the recovery, but you want to be a part of the fun - e-mail me.... Thanks again all! Love you Michele!!!!
