Each step takes us further…The image above was taken at the conclusion of an hour long water therapy excercise where Lety is exiting the pool by climbing the stairs. There was a time when 2 nurses, 1 physical therapist, my brother and myself could barely help her sit upright in a hospital bed. That day was nearly two months following her stroke. We did not know how far she would come. Lety first learned of this therapy while attending a local stroke support club meeting where Mark her therapist was presenting the value of water therapy. She has been going ever since then on average one to twice weekly. Her progress has been steady and this is something she looks forward too.
