April 15, 2011: Standing up!
Here are photos of Jim getting into a standing position. He stood up and sat down 4 times today with mod to min assistance. He was able to keep standing up for 5 minutes at a time with minimal assistance.
His PT, Clay, said that he could feel Jim's muscles working and his weight shifting through his ankles. Standing up will help get more of his trunk and leg muscles to wake up and get back to work.
Yesterday I wrote an email to Dr Berliner with a copy to Sonia. I haven't heard back from either of them. I wonder if Dr Wenzel has gotten around to making the readmit request for Jim yet.
