This first session in the 92 degrees water was so exciting. It was the first time since Don's stroke 7

Jean,

 

Sounds like you've found a great therapist to work with Don. You will be amazed at how much better he will walk in the water than on land. :Clap-Hands: "GO DON" When Gary starts to tire out from the walking, we lay him back and I hang onto his chest and we make him kick his legs to keep them going even if he's not standing up. He thinks he's getting a break, but we're still working him! :bouncing_off_wall:

Sarah,

 

That is so neat that you and Gary have also had experience in the pool so we can compare notes. I'm lucky, though, because they aren't making me get in with Don. It's been such a short time, but I think I can see a slight difference already in his transfers getting stronger. The only mishap we came close to having is getting Don's brand new $3,000 hearing aids under water. I dug out his old one to wear from now on. He can't hear a darn thing without some help.

JEAN,

 

AQUATIC THERAPY IS THE BEST! I'VE BEEN DOING IT THREE DAYS A WEEK FOR OVER THREE YEARS. WITHOUT IT AND MY "ANGEL" LEADER, WHO KNOWS WHERE I WOULD BE TODAY. SO GLAD IT'S AGREEING WITH DON. YOU WILL SEE CHANGES AND EVEN AN IMPROVEMENT IN HIS MENTAL OUTLOOK. EVERYBODY WHO HAD A STROKE, AND CAN, SHOULD BE IN THE WATER FOR THERAPY.

I am very happy for both of you for your land and aquatic therapy, I always thought and heard return of leg is easier since we walk on our legs, you should also keep goal of being able to walk with cane it will be good for your back and good for Don.
