Our Satomi & Working

by on May 1, 2009

Who is walking up and down the halls on the second day after brain surgery?  Our Satomi.  Who passes all of the PT and neuro tests and leaves the hospital in 4 days?  Our Satomi.  Who is walking around the block (with supervision) in only 9 days?  Our Satomi.  Who is walking up and down the stairs all by herself in less than 2 weeks?  Our Satomi.  Who is impressing every doctor she meets?  Our beloved Satomi.

Satomi is getting better everyday.  Now that the staples are out and her balance is back, she doesn’t need me to help her bath or move around or go up and down the stairs.  I am not comfortable with this newfound mobility but she’s learned just not to ask permission.  (She better not teach that trick to our girls-Grrr!) 

When she’s not openly defying me, she spends most of her waking hours watching TV.  The boredom is just driving her nuts.  She’s told me that many times but I already knew-I can see the boredom brewing on her face.

While I may think she’s nuts and you may think I’m nuts, everyone has to admire her strength.  Assuming she continues on this path, I think I’m going to let her go back to work as soon as the week of May 11th.  We’re considering half-days a couple times a week but we’ll have to see how it goes. 

Our goal is for her to exercise her mind.  I will not allow her to be exposed to any stress whatsoever so I’m not overly sure how long this will last. 

She wants this so I will do whatever I can to make it happen.
