Moving Forward
First full day on the rehab floor.!!! (Saturday is a light day and Sunday a day of rest.)The schedule includes 3 hours of physical/occupational therapy --about 2 hours in the morning and an hour in the afternoon. With help I will also get him up to the chair this evening.  So far so good---he is understandably tired but working hard to meet the challenges. They constantly include family members as we will be going home with the patient.  It's all very interesting. We saw Dr. Saggi on the weekend and he continues to say the fistula will heal.  In his words "It's just 4 steps forward and 1 step back".  When we think of it in those terms it helps us remember the very successful outcome of the surgery. We are blessed with wonderful doctors!!! 
Love to all


  1. The past updates are so wonderful. We will continue to think of a speedy recovery for Uncle Louie. Praying for y'all daily!

  2. What wonderful news. I am so happy that our prayers are being answered and progress is being made.
    May God continue to give you the strength mentally and physically to get through this.
    God bless you,
    Richard & Claudia
