During two previous Physical/Occupational Therapy sessions Fred made pizza and Liz made cookies. On this day Shelley made calzones, covered with Virgilio’s chunky Tomato – Basil pasta sauce. That’s a delicious combination. The next course consisted therapeutic exercises.
My physical and occupational therapists Jess and Shelley with their gifts from me: Fish City shirt from my gallery and “Bad Ass” socks from the POP Gallery. Small gifts for two people who played big in my recovery. A diploma, signed by the therapy team and Den Mar staff, celebrates how I got my mobility back. As the three of us walked back to my room, Jess played the Pomp and Circumstance march on her iPhone. People the length of the hall clapped and cheered. I could only purse my lips to contain the emotion and concentrate on my walking.
