One of the goals following surgery is to build her strength back up. Physical therapy began yesterday with visits from St. Joseph's Home Health Care. She will work with both physical and occupational therapists at home until she is ready for outpatient care.
The best kind of therapy is her garden! Tom comes over multiple times everyday and has been absolutely terrific at getting her to walk, walk, walk. He patiently takes her around the yard, even walking up and down the street to check out what is going on in the neighborhood.

In between all of this, St. Joseph's Home Health Care will be providing visits from physical & occupational therapists as well as biweekly visits from their nursing staff.
She really has enjoyed the visits from her family and friends. I would encourage anyone locally to feel free to stop in for a visit!
