We are so grateful for the help Richard has received from the physical therapist in town who took over from the home health physical and occupational therapists who came to the house during the early days of his recovery.
He has made so much progress. He is now able to drive my car (automatic transmission) and the pick-up (stick shift) around town. He can’t yet manage the Toyota (stick shift) because the pedals are too close together and he has trouble finding the accelerator because his right foot is a little wonky.
Today he was able to push a cart through the grocery store without any walking aids and without needing to sit down on the bench.
It is very liberating for him to be able to “do things” again, almost like normal, and liberating for me too.
