It was so nice to be home today and have Neil here with me. For his physical therapy we did a little Wii Fit. For speech and language therapy we played some word games. Neil helped me with dinner by stirring the sauce and mashing some potatoes. He helped Scott in the yard by picking up sticks. How's that for some useful occupational therapy? We're looking for those things you can do with one working hand. I think he liked feeling helpful and part of the family. By the time he went to bed tonight, he was exhausted but content, I think. (As were we all!)
Tomorrow morning we visit the neurosurgeon to see about getting his skull pieced back together. He's looking forward to not wearing his helmet, so we hope that surgery is soon.
In the afternoon he begins his real outpatient therapy with a three hour session at the Kessler facility in Chester. It's just a little bit closer than West Orange, and a less stressful drive as long as it's not rush hour. He will be going three days a week.
Big day tomorrow. I'd better get to bed myself!
