Lyris has had a lot of surgeries and this was the most intense one. She has never been so eager to get up and moving. It generally takes her a couple of days to get out of bed. She kept asking for physical therapy so we finally obliged. She still has some pain (of course). She’s not quite ready to hold a conversation but she’s doing really well.

Lyris- “Can you call physical therapy” Nurse-“I already ordered it”

Lyris- (pause)- “It’s in a package?”

Nurse- (puzzled) “Huh??”

Lyris- “You said you ordered it”

We laughed hysterically!!! Physical therapy came. She got up and went for a ride in the wheelchair. They washed her up and put her back in bed. She’s in/out of sleep but doing well!
