I'm Going Home!!

Well, I'm not going home just yet, but the people here at the Casa have set a tentative discharge date of July 23rd for me. That will give me time for two overnight weekend visits to make sure everything is fine at the apartment and one last round of doctor visits to make sure I'm ready.

I'm still pretty weak from the hospital stay, but I did manage to put in a full day of therapy without a nap in the afternoon. Some stretching, light freeweights for the arms, time in the CPM machine and more elbow work made up the day. My strength is coming back slower than I'd like but today I managed a couple of mat transfers on my own. Tomorrow we're going to try the car transfer again and by Friday I'll be ready to head back to the gym.
