Sandra continues to make good progress. She was even taken outside today in her wheelchair. The task was to find her way back to her room which she was able to do. No mean feat, as anyone who has visited Sandra for the first time can attest to. It’s the first time she’s been out of a hospital. That, combined with a beautiful day, did wonders for her spirit. She still has several weeks of therapy ahead of her (or more). The doctors only take it one week at a time for insurance purposes, so we’re not exactly sure how long it will take.
As you know, she has been online and actually typed her own Facebook post which was taxing. It took about an hour. She still has trouble focusing on words and finds too much information confusing. When you talk to her she sounds quite normal but even simple tasks can confuse and confound her. We’re thrilled with her progress but realize that there needs to be so much more before she will be released.
She has seen some, but not all, of the blog and was deeply moved by your comments. She actually knows she is not ready to read it all and is overwhelmed by the volume of posts and comments. We know she will find comfort in it at the appropriate time and we thank you for everything you have written. It well help her get through the months yet to come as she learns to cope without the faithful, encouraging presence of Glen.
