Physical Therapy

We worked on balancing today while doing the movement with arms and head.  This was to help Lidia practice keeping her balance while in motion.  We pulled out the Hemi-walker to have her grab on to something if needed but to also practice for when we get the full leg brace.  One of the issues that we are finding now, is that Lidia cannot lock her right leg yet. The brace that we are getting should help us out with this.  Hopefully, we pick up the brace on Friday.

Frustration

Communicating is hard.  In a way, it gets harder the harder she tries and the more frustrated she gets until she breaks down in tears.  It takes me about 30 minutes to settle her back down. 

Panda Express

Normally, Lidia likes Panda Express.  Tonight, however, she only ate a little bit.  Maybe I ordered it wrong.  It didn't come with teriyaki sauce like it normally does.  Anyway, she didn't eat it all and we resorted to soup and later on, a can of chili.

Visitors

Cisco and Argerie came by and visited with us. Such good people to come by and give their support to Lidia and her recovery.
