Physical Therapy

Kate's appointments had dropped back to two days a week.  She has progressed to an active loss of about 10 degrees of use last Friday, but we could move her arm to straight!  That is a huge improvement from the days when we could barely pull her to 40 degrees.  As of last night, we have graduated from physical therapy.  She can completely straighten her arm!!

We had planned to put her in a splint to passively stretch her, but at this point, that will not be necessary.  Her therapist said Kate had the fastest elbow recovery of any of her patients ever.

I am so grateful for her huge gains.
