Positive Attitude

Wennie has gotten a lot better since her first admittance into the Valley Medical Center. Today, she was excited for everything that was going on. Proud of regained ability to eat real food, she quickly scarfed down meatloaf, mashed potatoes, pureed corn and ice cream. I think she started with the ice cream. =)

The physical therapist came in and tested the strength of her limbs and commented on her fast recovery. However, the left side is still lacking enough strength for physical therapy. She can adjust the bed by herself and overall movement was much better. She seems eager to go home but understands that patience is needed. So she makes the most of her time.

Using a force expiration exercising device, she gave her lungs a thorough work out. It seems to be helping as her breathing continues to improve.

A thanks to all of you for your prayers and kind words. Wennie's improvement is a direct result of all the support everyone has given her.
