It was a very busy day, just as I suspected it would be. Max worked out his arm until it hurt, spinal cord injury group was about hiring caregivers to come into the home.
Later that afternoon the therapist put him in a tilt table. He was up to a 40 degree angle before his blood pressure dropped. The goal is to get him up to a 70-75 degree angle. It was pretty cool to see him almost standing up! Afterward they worked on Max sitting up in his wheelchair and bending forward and recovering. He has to be able to support his weight on his left arm before he can begin to transfer himself from the chair to the bed or the chair to a car.
We have an appointment Aug 31 & Sept 1. Then we might be heading home for a little while for Max to heal.
We need to be praying for the secretions to decrease. They are about to make him crazy suctioning and putting him on the cough assist machine. He feels like he's going to choke sometimes but they keep on chugging away.
I won't have the schedule until tomorrow. I'm sure it will be another full day of therapy.
