I have a much better feeling about the therapists here as we begin to meet and work with them. Joe seems to have adjusted to having several people in his room and if you know Joe he has no problem telling people what he needs. Thank goodness for that. Joe's release date is July 1, so we have a lot to accomplish in this next month both mentally and physically. We will then have PT and nurses coming to the house in ongoing therapy. It takes up to 18 months or longer for the nerves, etc to heal, so as time progresses therapy, etc will change. We are in this for the long haul. Sandy & Joe

Wednesday, June 3: The Intensity Grows
We are getting settled in to our rehab routine and my attitude is improving. How I just have to figure out how to keep going at the "rehab clip". Classes are scheduled from about 10 am to 4:30 so don't expect too many phone calls during the week. Sunday is an off day, so perhaps that will be our social time. There is speech and occupational therapy in the morning, mat classes, pulley classes and PT in the afternoon and if that hasn't killed you off, they have self care classes from 3:30-4:30 on a variety of subjects.
