Loretta home and doing well

As expected, Loretta came home on the 5th. By time she arrived here, she was in a lot of pain and the right leg was badly swollen. Rest and pain medication helped and by next day the swelling had started to reduce. On Friday we went to Shelbyville for medications and some shopping, but she kept walking to a minimum. However she had no difficulty getting into and out of our truck. Sunday we went to church and other than being uncomfortable and some pain while sitting in the pew, she did well. When we arrived, she was greeted by all in attendance cheering her arrival.

This past Monday, the visiting nurse arrived and appeared to be well satisfied with her progress. On Tuesday we went to a nearby laundromat where Loretta was able to assist some in doing our laundry. Wednesday the Physical Therapist arrived and was also happy with the progress. In fact, I think she seems to be coming along much faster than in the Skilled Nursing Unit. The Occupational Therapist called Friday, but apparently didn't have good directions. She did not arrive and called to tell us to expect her next week. Later another Physical Therapist stopped by and gave her a better workout than she had received on Wednesday.

Yesterday we went to Shelbyville again where Loretta was able to walk over 1/4 mile. And today we went to Ray's Chapel UMC Church again. This afternoon, Daughter-in-law Kathy came by to visit and join us for dinner when she left.

So as of now, I am very happy with her progress. We will be seeing 2 of her doctors on Thursday and more therapy is scheduled for this week.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
GOD Bless
Andy and Loretta
