Heidi Is Home
Here is the beginning our “New Year”…
Yesterday was a big day for our family. We had a home-visit with one of Heidi’s physical therapists to see if she was strong enough to come home. We practiced going up/down the stairs, getting in/out of the car, using a walker, crutches, and more…looks like we passed! Upon our return to the nursing home they had already begun the process of discharging her. So, I packed up the car and brought her home!
We are now waiting (there’s a lot of waiting that happens with these things) on getting some necessary home medical equipment and then we continue the process of healing at home. We are also waiting to find out what her regular PT/OT will be. We’re hoping that some of that will be done in our home for the first week or two, then perhaps be able to take her to an outpatient facility throughout the week to speed up her recovery and keep her strong for being at home.
She needs constant supervision because she will not be able to bear any weight on her left leg for another 8 weeks. We have to be very careful with stairs, bathing, moving around, and so on. Visitors are welcome anytime, contact me for directions.
It’s so good to have her home and I know she is looking forward to being able to spend more time with her hero, Megan. 🙂 Thanks for the continued prayers and other support, you are loved by the Conyers’ family!
