March 31, 2011: Good News

For the first time in over 4 months Jim urinated on his own, no catheter! This is really a giant step forward for him. He said it made him feel more normal. The doctor's assistant, Ray, had given him a urinal last week because he thought Jim was ready. He said we just had to figure out the logistics.

Jim's fingers were working better, too. The new night time gloves kept his fingers straight so they were not so tight in the morning.

He is doing better on board transfers also. Tomorrow his PT, Lois wants to teach me how to assist him. She said it won't take any lifting from me. It would really help when Jim comes home.
