Nancy,It's great to hear about the progress Mandy has made that is awesome.You must be so happy to be all home again.It sounds all too familiar to me what your family has been through.Tomorrow will be exactly one year since Kathleen's most severe stroke(she is 6 yrs old).She lost all movement on her left side.We too spent much time away from home.almost 2 weeks in BCH and then 4 weeks in rehab.She is just now startingto walk holding our hand. Her left arm is much slower to come back,she is just now able to touch her nose with her fist.It is the first real "voluntary" movement she has had in her arm. Her hand is mostly either totaly "limp" or in a fist.I would love to hear more about your daughters rehab.It sounds like she is makeing great gains.I havelearned so much about what Kathleen is going through by talking to adult stroke survivors,Things Kathleen is not yet able to verbalise to me.I have great hope that Kathleen will be walking on her own by summer.Great news!! thanks for shareing it with us.
