Ashleys First Day at Rehab (RHI)




What a difference a few hours make...Ashley was transferred to RHI rehab at 1 pm today and it is a wonderful place..Nice, clean, airy and the staff are all smiling..Ashley's first request was to put on her regular street clothes, and her nikes, and get up in wheel chair and go outside..We were so surprized that they said 'of course'..So, that's what we did and to our amazement, Ashley handled sitting up in the wheelchair really well..most of the hour was spent without dizziness or nausea..the grounds are beautiful and we spent the time under a huge gazebo surrounded by roses and flowers..She couldn't believe how wonderful the air and flowers smelt after being in a hospital bed for 12 days..


The hard work starts tomorrow as her therapy begins and she is looking forward to the challenge and getting better and learning the skills she needs to live her life..Today is a great day!!
