moving forward

navigating through the life that was and moving into the life that is

10:00 PM

on November 14, 2011

Sandra worked hard at her therapy today, complaining the whole time. She goes for 3 hours with 1 hour each of PT, OT and ST. She still doesn’t fully understand why she has to do it so doing it only agitates her. But she gets through it.

She is probably looking at several more weeks at least before they decide what the next move might be.

Glen should be able to undergo surgery on his left leg by Thursday or Friday. He has not fully regained consciousness since the accident.

Cindy finally left the hospital and Sandra’s side for the first time tonight. She and Dena (Sandra’s cousin) went to Aunt Margot’s to shower and change and go right back. Her brother Tom took up the vigil in their absence and everything went well. Hopefully Cindy will be able to extricate herself a little more so she can take care of herself. She simply does not want Sandra to wake up and not have Mom’s face to look at for reassurance. Between Cindy, Aunt Cathy and Dena, there has always been someone there, even in the middle of the night.

    Learning is messy like playing in the mud. Keep cheering Sandy on and duck quick when she throws mud back at you. Good news on Glen. hugs, J&C

  3. I am so happy to hear of the progress Sandy is making and am keeping she and Glen in my prayers. Thank you so much for keeping this blog updated for those of us caring from afar. I have always known Sandy to be a strong, determined woman…that fact, combined with the love and support of her amazing family, reassures me that she will make a full recovery. Keep fighting, girl! Love, Molly
