Ada was up on the standing frame at the rehab clinic, she grabbed Connie's, her physical therapist, arms and gave her a hug. Friday was Ada's last day, unless we can get more hours from Medicaid. I hope we get to take the Standing frame home soon. Ada must get tired of sitting in the chair or laying down on her bed all the time.
Here is Ada on the Standing Frame.
Ada is sitting on the red exercises ball.
Many friends came for a visit during holiday. John and Kirsten Olson came yesterday, and I can tell that she was very pleased. She laughs and smiles a lot. She moves her left hand more and more. She really try to move it and almost grab a brush that I gave her. This is exciting because she is left handed and we cannot wait to see what she can do with it. She also using her leg and her foot. If you sit close to her she will put her legs on your lap. The other day she pat the doggie with her foot.
Despised how bad the economy is, many had send in the donations for Ada. We are grateful for your thought, your pray and your generosity.
I would like this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy new Year, and if you haven't yet make a list of your new year resolutions, please do so by adding "I will visit Ada once a month" at the end. I'm sure Ada would like to see all your pretty, smiley faces.
Another good news is we are able to contact Hamilton about Ada's wheelchair. The electric bed that we had asked for is still pending. Ada's nurse, Valarie, had been a big help everyday. She comes 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening to help me taking care of Ada.
