With the Seattle crew back safely home, Mom enjoyed hearing Ross's interpretations of this past weekends events. And Ross enjoyed being back hanging out with Mom.

Today was a lower key day for Mom, which she enjoyed. She worked out with the PT assistant, which is always good, but not as challenging as working out with the physical therapist. The schedule is actually really good: Mom works with her fabulous PT on Mondays and Thursdays, which is a lot of balance work and constant progress. It's always a push and it's always hard. Tuesdays, Wednesday and Fridays, she works out with the lovely assistant, who takes her walking and to the bike and also does a lot of general functional exercises and stretching. These workouts are challenging, too, but less intense than Mondays and Thursdays. They are also not taken out of her limited PT sessions, so she is able to stretch those out a bit. Weekends are rest days, though sometimes she'll walk the halls or outside if it's nice with family and friends. She is constantly stretching and doing upper body exercises too.

So, today after a good workout, Mom enjoyed sitting outside and got in a good nap. And then caught up with Ross. I'm planning to head out this weekend and very much looking forward to catching up myself.
