We were glad that you guys were able to move her closer so we could see her. I know with your help and her drive to get better she will be alright. I am glad she has you. 
 
Time
And so begins another week of rehab, this time, without the need for me to spend 4 hours a day in my car driving too and from Ann Arbor to be with Lisa which I'm so very thankful for. We met with her new physical therapist and occupational therapist today a...

Forks & Scream
Due to her weakness and lack of fine motor skills with her fingers, Lisa has had constant issues holding on to silverware when eating.  We've tried using adaptive foam inserts to place over the silverware handles to help her grip them better, but even then,...

R.I.P. to my dear friend and faithful companion
I had to say goodbye to our dog Bo today.  Unfortunately, since she's in the hospital, Lisa couldn't be there with us.  Bo had stopped eating and drinking and was unable to stand up on his own.  My sister, Melissa and I took him to the vet today and x-rays ...

I'm sorry Mike, it's hard to loose a friend like him.
 
Monday
No new news regarding any bed availability in Saginaw, but it was another promising day of therapy. This morning in occupational therapy, her therapist wanted to see how well Lisa could do while playing 2 separate games with 2 people at the same time.  I'd ...
