What a day! We had to cancel Nicks regularly scheduled therapy at Project Walk because his stumps are getting rubbed raw from his prostheses. They opened up last night, making it obvious he needed to get some adjustments.
Since we had to be in Redlands for that emergency appointment, we decided to swing by his old rehab hospital in San Bernardino. Good ol’ Ballard! I lived in that parking lot for a month and got to know the town quite well. It felt good today when I couldn’t remember how to get there and we had to map the directions. That means I’m gaining emotional separation from that time in our lives.
We got to see Nicks amazing therapist Jon, who was responsible for getting him up and out of the hospital so soon. We saw our friend Lori, and a few of Nicks favorite nurses, Karen and Denise.
It felt so good to say thank you to these people now that some of the dust has settled and we can see more clearly what a pivotal role they played in Nicks recovery.
