Seeing the Sites

We were finally given the "go-ahead" to take Lindsey outside the rehab unit (but still on the campus here) - as long as she's in a wheelchair.  We went to Subway last night and wheeled around a little bit.  Lindsey was glad to get out and get some fresh air and sunlight.  She's doing marvelously!  Her balance is getting closer and closer to normal, and she's commanding the use of her right hand more and more every day.  That fine motor control is coming back slowly, and it takes great effort.  But she's getting it! 

We find out what their recommendations are for discharge today.  We'll know exactly how much longer they think we'll be here, and what kind of additional rehab and treatment she'll need after we get home.  We're hoping for discharge soon, and limited 24hr assistance. 

The hardest part of this all right now is communication.  Lindsey still has a hard time remembering, communicating, and understanding certain things.  This will probably be the most difficult part of rehab.  She's gaining ground on it, though.

We continue to pray that her brain will heal on it's own.  We're optimistic that it will.  Thank you all for your prayers, love, and support!


  1. I am thrilled to read that she is making great improvements. With my mom, I have to continually remind myself that she experienced a brain injury and that healing comes in time. With time and lots of prayer she will recover beautifully.

  2. I am so glad to hear that things are getting better! I will continue to have you guys in my prayers!

  3. Thank you for posting some of your experiences on your blog. I miss Lindsey so much and it is so nice to read what she is up to. Hang in there Aaron, she is going to be better than new in no time. :)
