Eleven weeks today, Nammie, "got stroke" as Taylor calls it. The girls think getting stroke is like getting the flu. The other day, Christi asked Elaine when she was going to be done with her stroke. Based on Elaine's progress, it will be soon!
Today was a nice day off of physical therapy today for Elaine. Instead of working hard on straightening her leg as she walks, Elaine focused on "life therapy." It started first thing in the morning when she made breakfast for Fred and herself for the first time in while. Fred had his usual hard-boiled eggs while Elaine enjoyed cereal! Nice work Elaine. A big step toward normalcy.
Thanks to today's Southern California monsoon, Fred and Elaine cancelled their plans to go see a movie. Instead she stayed home and organized the house. She spent a significant amount of time trying to figure out where they were going to put all of the clothes and shoes Elaine recently requested from her closet in the desert.
All that organizing builds an appetite, and Fred and Elaine enjoyed home made enchiladas for dinner. All in all, it was a nice, easy day with a much deserved break from therapy for Elaine. She will be back at it tomorrow working her way back to wearing all this high heels in her closet.
