Wow, it is amazing to me that every day I need to write something on the blog because what I wrote the day before is already old news! What a wonderful feeling. Today, at Bob's last PT session of the day, he walked 200 feet!!! He had to stop two times and rest a bit but the good thing is his heart rate and saturated oxygen number have improved so much each day. He really is getting stronger. The body is an incredible machine. Today we also went to a harp/meditation program presented by one of the nurses. A very relaxing way for Bob and me to spend a half hour. The music was especially beautiful and the relaxation techniques, helpful.
Bob has had some difficulty with pain control but today, with some new medication, the pain seemed to be better. Maybe that is why he did so well in physical therapy. I'm sure we all move better when we aren't in pain.
