|Aunt Mary, Bob & Uncle Dick|
This photo taken yesterday. They are on their way back home this week.
Last year they weren't able to make their yearly Florida sojourn due to some medical issues of their own. So we both were delighted to see them!
Bob was especially thrilled! This was the first visit from his side of the family since he was hospitalized.
|Uncle Dick tests Bob's pushing strength.|
Dick even tried his hand at a little PT.
Other good news: This past week, Bob suddenly is able to push with his right leg. As if those muscles have come alive!
The first few times I tried to get Bob to push back at me, while I pushed his leg forward, he couldn't do it at all. I could feel no resistance, none, na da. Then, on Friday, I felt a bit of resistance, a little push. And on Saturday, he pushed me so hard I practically fell backward!!! Afterward, my shoulder hurt like heck. Now, we need to work on not just pushing his leg down, but pulling it back up.
