Today is day 3 of Cynthia’s rehab schedule, and the first day that I’ve been able to be with her throughout each session. (Our hill at home turned into a solid sheet of ice on Sunday night, so it wasn’t until Tuesday afternoon that James was able to safely get the car down the drive.)
The team here at Southern Hills is allowing me to get involved with her therapy, and let me tell you–it is no picnic. Each moment is challenging, but she is determined as ever. I’ve gotten questions about how long this will take? and, when will she be home? Right now we are not on any kind of time frame at all. Each moment dictates the next. While we are eagerly anticipating bringing her home, it is incredibly important to not rush, to be very deliberate with each step of this process.
For the time being we are going to put a hold on visitors, just until we get the rhythm of each day worked out.
We thank you so much for your encouragement, and for your stories! I’ve loved hearing them more than you can know; keep them coming! Here are a few photos from this weekend of Cynthia with me, Sarah James, and Abigail, and another of Cynthia and her Aunt (who is really more like a sister) Ilona, who came to visit from New Orleans for the week.
