Back where she belongs! She was in her own bed last night and slept better than she has in a month. Activities to keep her productive and entertained are limited due to her vision. Naturally she still gets bored, but its not nearly as bad as hospital boredom. Everyone she knows has been super supportive by bringing meals to the house and jumping at the opportunity to assist in any way possible. She needs 24 hour supervision to prevent any missteps or falls, or its “game over” as her physical therapist put it. Obviously the therapist has little to no experience playing games, considering the majority of all games clearly give you 3 lives until “game over”. She is still getting adjusted to asking for assistance, even when she thinks she may not need it. The medical staff made it clear that while her brain continues to heal she may think she is capable of doing something physical on her own, (standing up, walking, going down the stairs) she must have someone assist her at all times.
On Wednesday she will be going to the hospital to schedule her 2nd surgery. The brain doctor will do some exams and check how her recovery is going. She will have therapists visiting the house (occupational, physical, speech, ninjutsu) throughout the weeks. Pepper gets her started in the morning, while Marlo and Avery have her back the majority of every day. Each day is a step towards recovery, or as the great Benjamin Franklin once said “Hello, my name is Benjamin Franklin”.
