Attitude is what makes the difference between an ordeal and an adventure.
The long and the short of it is, the week is off to a great start. The physical therapist assigned to Pat for the entire week is nothing short of terrific. She and Pat "click", and she told Pat that Pat can wear whatever she wants to their sessions. That means Our Girl wears spike heels for the wheel chair rides to the 'gym', then changes into her flats. Apparently she's the first to try this innovative approach. (And Pat says I never take her out.)
One of the best things about the day is that the physical therapist is openly confident that this will indeed help Pat. Doesn't seem to be much question about it. (Sweet.) She makes no bones that it will be a lot of hard work for Pat and there are no bets as to how long things will eventually take, as this week is just a kickstarter for the whole process. And the morning session was indeed at times hard, BUT Pat and I can already see a difference. I'll guard the optimism and stop there.
Thanks all for the prayers and encouragement. God is blessing this time already. Stay tuned.
