As I mentioned in my last update, my Mom was able to go home from the rehab hospital last Wednesday. She is so glad to be home and is doing extremely well.
She was able to attend her family's Christmas gathering on New Year's Day and enjoyed it but didn't stay the whole time as it wore her out. She was also able to attend church on Sunday. Apparently, upon returning home from church, she insisted on walking up the steps with her cane rather than the walker.
Many friends have mentioned to me that with that kind of determination, she will most likely make a full recovery. That's what we are praying for! All along she has been adamant that she will "get over this" and has been diligent to do everything the doctors and therapists have asked of her.
For her ongoing therapy, she chose going to the rehab center rather than having a therapist visit her at home. She said that if they came to her then she would be almost completely housebound and she didn't want that. Again, a good sign!
Thanks to all who have been praying for her. Your sweet comments have meant so much!
