Fran took her first steps today. Of course, she did not saunter off down the hall. She needed a lot of support from the physical therapist. But the progress was real and large. Because of the shut down of her left side, she has to learn a very different set of responses. What her brain thinks is standing straight is no longer straight. She has to look in a mirror and correct. But she is learning how to do it.
Her mood is better, her eating is good, and she looks great.
We had lots of visitors today, and she liked it a lot.
