Last Day of Therapy at Manor Care
We found out today that Dad will be transferring to Edwin Shaw for intensive rehab on Monday. And since Manor Care doesn't do therapy on the weekends, today was Dad's last day with the rehab staff at Manor Care that we have all grown to love and appreciate. Therefore, we took some pictures and video to remember them by.
Before we get to the pictures, I have one story to share with you from his therapy today. In speech therapy Dad was finishing sentences with a word (and did very well, by the way). For example "You eat soup with a ..." "Spoon." Well, he finished this sentence, "The children make too much..." with the word "Money" and began laughing, not just smiling, but laughing!! It was too funny and he had the whole therapy room smiling and laughing with him :)
