Hand Therapy

Mark is feeling better again today, with the swelling starting to decrease in his face. This is letting the aches and pains in other parts of the body emerge, but this is the road to recovery.

There has been a lot of change for the boys: there have been visitors to the house, no walks outside, strange hours, and strange smells. Vladi has been the calmest, keeping on his schedule of eating, sleeping, and begging for attention. Uschi has kept a close eye on Mark, usually within an arm's reach. Tanji, well poor Meow-Me T has been a bit stressed by all the changes.

Today Mark had his wrist examined again and was given physical therapy activities to work his shoulders and fingers, as well as a custom wrist "brace." Mark was left alone to choose the colors of the plastic and straps,.... It was a good idea to let Tanj meet the new addition...

Tanji was ready to bolt if necessary,

He's still a little tense, but smiling too.

Oh, that feels good.

If I MUST help dad with his hand therapy,...

Settling in for a nap,
there is a lot of that going on around here!

Sorry to hear of Mark's accident and wishing a speedy recovery. Looks like he is well taken care of with all of his TLC he is receiving from T, Uschi and V.
