Al has transitioned nicely to SMOL. I peeked in on his therapy this morning and he was being a superstar, doing work in the parallel bars, knee bends, leg swings, then for a walk about and ending with doing stairs. He is getting two 45 min. blocks of physio a day and an hour of occupational therapy. Communication is to start tomorrow. He thinks he can trade communication for more time with the physiotherapist. In reality that would be far too tiring for him. I told him communication is physio for his brain. That seemed to make sense. He is feeling so much better it is incredible. It makes me feel he was suffering from a low grade infection for much longer than anyone knew. He is more engaged and eager to move than he has been since his surgery. Because of our weather I just got Bridget in for a visit this afternoon. They were both thrilled to see each other.
His Dr. is planning another shoulder injection on Tuesday to help with his ongoing shoulder pain.
