Therapy Tuesday

Today was a big day.  I discharged my patient, Barbara, who I can say, without a doubt, is my biggest success story.

I met Barbara months ago.  I was only supposed to see her the once, covering for another physical therapist.

She was unable to stand.  She was scared to even try to stand with me because I’m a small woman.  With time, she grew confident that we could do it.  Every session had laughs.  Many sessions had her in tears, frustrated by the slow progress.  One session, when she finally walked without any help from me, I cried.

After months of hard work, she can now stand and walk in her home without anyone helping her.

It has been a great pleasure working with Barbara and I hope she only continues to gain strength and independence.
