Just a quick update on my mom.
It was two weeks ago Tuesday that she had major cervical surgery with Dr. Gill, and she is doing amazing!
She is up and moving around, with the neck brace on, with minimal pain and increased strength, sensation and balance compared with immediately prior to surgery. Each day we are increasing the amount of activity, walks along the bike path, trips to Wal-mart and City Market, even a trip to the outlet mall in Silverthorne! Last night we played a couple of balance games on the Wii & tonight we are headed to see “Alaska’s Fiddling Poet” at the Avon public library (presented by the Bookworm of Edwards.)
She wants to thank everyone for all of the good wishes and prayers, (and of course the cards and flowers) it has been great knowing that so many people care about how she is doing. She still isn’t up to much time on the phone, or sitting and typing on the computer, but she is getting back to everyone slowly.
We are looking forward to her first follow-up appointment with Dr. Gill on the 27th, and hope to get a script for PT!
We’ll let you know more after that appointment.
