Jim At Home - Day 1

Sun is shining. Birds are singing outside. Being home is wonderful.



We have settled Jim in on the ground level of our split level, taking over his consultation room as a bedroom. Really working. And it felt so good to slide into bed next to him last night.



There are temporary adjustments and challenges as he gets more sure-footed. For the moment Jim totters a bit and can't walk safely without a walker. He feels held down by that because he is ready to be back action. Max, the PT guy at GW, cautioned him to "keep your head on" before you make a false move. Sound advice.

A Home Health Care Nurse will check in with him this morning. And a Physical Therapist will come Monday or Tuesday. We are learning about another world of heath care. More later
