On Oct 29th Marijo and I visitedthe Ottawa Rehab Hospital for the second time. The doctor felt I had improved enough on my strengthening and walking from the first time she saw me in early 2012, that she felt I could benefit from their expertise and facility.
So, sometime between now and Christmas I will be admitted to the hospital during the week for intensive walking therapy. They want to start with 2 consecutive weeks of training. I will attend extensive workouts twice daily where I will practice balance, gait training etc. If improvements are noticed we will have the option to re visit next steps. Depending on my progress I willeither stay a bit longer or accept that I am at the limit of my abilities. I’m so excited to be given this opportunity and look forward to seeing where I can go working with this team.
