Dad did well in therapy this morning and finished up just in time to see a VERY SPECIAL VISITOR (thanks to special permission from the charge nurse). I came to visit too, but today I'm just the special visitor's chauffeur. Mimi of course was thrilled to see her "little ladybug", and Pawpaw got see his "sweetie" for the first time in quite a while.

Today dad received his first real haircut since before the accident. His hair has thinned quite a bit since then, but what hasn't fallen out desperately needed to be trimmed. Marilyn came to visit and dad was able to sit in a regular chair and let her spruce him up.
As if sitting in that chair wasn't tiring enough, he also had regular therapy today. He did great!

Dad is back from surgery and all went well. It was just another washout, but they are also really focusing on the healing of his legs. When the area where the grafts were taken heals (and Dr. Duke is ready) he hopes to take skin from that area again to graft the middle and the left side. We aren't really sure when this will be - but it's nice to hear that there's a plan.
Dad had therapy again yesterday and it was so, so, tough. He puts forth every effort and the therapist really push him, but this so much harder than one might expect. He's doing well and very motivated but of course progress is slow. We are happy with any and all progress. Slow is fine - we have time!!!
