Fran, Monday April 18

Today was another day like yesterday, with a lot of hard work and slow progress.Dr. Stone, the neurologist in charge of the unit sat down with us at breakfast and told Fran that her progress had been remarkable in the week that she had been there.

She is getting more hours of instruction, between 3 and 4 hours a day, combining physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy (swallowing).  She is quite tired at the end of the day. I think life for her is like it would be for you if gravity were not constantly in the same direction.  She has to completely relearn her orientation in space.

She is eating more and her sense of humor is still strong.
