Today was Wesley's first full day of rehab. Because it was his first day, it was fairly easy... at least that is what we were told. When I got to the hospital this morning he had a toothbrush strapped to his left hand and a therapist was helping him learn how to brush his teeth.
Several therapists came in to evaluate and make plans with Wesley. They worked with him to make goals. By the afternoon he was pretty tired. He and I watched movies and TV shows together. We had a good time. Poor Wesley is still dealing with congestion so he coughs a lot.
My Grandma brought us some Panda Express for dinner. We all enjoyed it. Wesley was also excited to watch the Arizona GOP debate tonight. We couldn't talk to him while he and my dad were watching it.
Big News: Wesley showered for the first time since the accident today. Yay! I believe he is going to be trying out an electronic wheel chair soon. It is already in his room waiting for him.
Sad News: Today is my last day in Arizona. I am flying back to Louisiana in a few short hours. I have already said my goodbyes. I am thrilled to see my husband. I am sad to leave Wes. He is going to make so much progress by the next time I see him. I will see to it that the blog is kept updated.
I took some pictures today but I will post those tomorrow. For today, here is a video I begged him for. It is some more arm movements.
Go Team Wes!
