Closer to Home!!

Finally!  Machel is in South Ogden at the Pine View Transitional Rehab Center.  It is beautiful facility.  The lobby has a giant fireplace and is cozy.  The staff has been incredible.  Her room is really nice, it doesn’t have that hospital feel and she likes that.  She has been there just over a month.  She had a few rough weeks after the move but seems to be doing much better.  She is working hard at physical therapy and spends 2-3 hours each day.  They have been working on her right hand and legs to help get her range of motion and strength back.  Her hand is doing great and is almost good as new.  Her pain levels are also getting better every day.  About the only pain she has is in her left knee.  They have her up walking using a walker.  She gets worn out quickly but is a trooper.  She can get herself in and out of bed and the shower.  She can put on her makeup and style her hair.  She has some awesome therapists helping her!  Just in the last week you can really see a big difference.  She is amazing and is very determined.  I think she will surprise us all!  She is VERY ready to go home and….hopefully we will have her home by the end of the month!
