The procedure to insert the filter in the vein went well.
Mike went down for the procedure at 10:45, and was back in the room at 12:15. He had to lay flat, again, until 2. Then he ate lunch and started back in on the therapy. No rest for him today! He went from occupational to speech to physical therapy.
Therapy has been going very well. The physical therapist he saw today may be the one he has in rehab. She was very encouraging and optimistic. I think that is a requirement for the job. It has been quite amazing to see him get some movement in his hand and arm.
We are anxious to get into rehab tomorrow! Since insurance limits the days, I am assuming we will have a schedule by Wednesday. I am planning to go home this weekend and really looking forward to spending some time with our kids!
