pam's progress.

Sunday, June 22, 2008

Just a quick update on Pam...
She was moved from ICU to a regular room early last week and then on Friday on to a rehab room...and that's where she'll be for the next few weeks.
Physical therapy is starting to work with her on getting out of bed and regaining her strength. They are supposed to also start teaching her how to use her left hand. (She was right-handed.)
Physically she's doing much better. She's fought off most of the stuff she's been battling for the last few weeks...now it's an emotional battle...coming to grips with the loss of her arm.
It sounds like she's starting to deal with that as well. She has requested a prosthetic and will get fitted this week. Obviously, she stilll has a lot to deal with but she's on the road to recovery.
And we couldn't be more thankful.

I can't believe everything you and your family have been dealing with in the last few weeks. I'm so glad Pam is doing better finally. What a terrible ordeal!

So glad that she is on the mend physically and mentally. She has a long road ahead of her.
