Wednesday, January 21
Another great day at Dodd Hall. The work that is being done here is nothing short of miraculous! Mr. Bichler is now working on walking unassisted. He even made apple-cinnamon muffins in occupational therapy. He couldn't bake before he went to the hospital so I guess they do perform miracles here! If they teach him to do laundry I'll be all set. Each day he seems to get stronger. Today at one of our classes we learned that for every week a patient spends in bed they lose 20% of their muscle mass. So Mr. B is working on regaining nearly 40% of his. Once the body recovers then the brain will start restoring the damage done to itself during and after the fall. So for now, we just keep moving forward, one step at a time.
