Today, Andrew woke up to a busy morning. He had back to back therapy from 7:30am to 11:00am. He worked on leg stretches, spent time in a wheelchair, wheeling himself, and getting a good look at the rehab facility floor. During therapy Andrew practiced stacking blocks, building strength and dexterity in his fingers. He also practiced writing. After therapy he took a much needed nap. His afternoon was more relaxing - hanging out with the family.
At the end of Andrew's first weekday of rehab here is what he had to say:
The hardest part of his day was staying awake during therapy due to being drowsy from pain medication. He said it was hard to stay chipper and awake.
The best part of the day was being able to stay up in his wheelchair for almost three hours.
Andrew is trying to get to the right balance for pain meds in order to stay energized during therapy. He wants enough to kill the pain but not too much to make him drowsy.
Message from Kathy:
Dear Faithful Friends,
Today for Kalli and I the anxiety of where to call home for one to two months has been met. Your prayers have provided an apartment on the 35th floors two blocks from Andrew. God's faithful touch is on everything as he provides for ALL of us.
