outpatient rehab report

We had our initial trip and evaluation at the outpatient therapy center this morning. We both were very comfortable with the therapists and the facility, including the pool. I start aqua therapy on Thursday and am excited to see what we'll be doing. We are glad that all of our appointments are not going to be so early in the morning! The therapy will be three times a week. I am looking forward to making great physical progress having made this move.

Note from Nancy: Mike did such an amazing job in rehab this a.m. He is gaining strength and stamina. We see the oncologist tomorrow to get blood work before chemo starts the following Monday. We are so grateful for the blessings we are receiving through this journey.

  2. ...a GREAT start to the rehab! Good for you and Mike. The water will be so very healing for you and just getting out and about has to be good for you, though I know the effort is huge. See you very soon.

    Hugs,
    Molly

  4. Mike and Nancy,
    Real troopers you both are!! The rehab news is good, keep on making such progress. Perhaps this new place is REALLY the right one. I was there once and wished I could have had more ehab time there. Apparently my rehab at the time was supposed to be elsewhere. Keep up the good work. We continue to send our love and prayers. J&B

  5. Do you need info on eating disorder treatment? It can really make a difference in your recovery.
