Reunion at Acute Rehab at Skaggs

Reunion at Acute Rehab at Skaggs

On Thursday, in honor of Rehabilitation Week, our local Skaggs Hospital Acute Rehabilitation Unit held an open-house reunion for former patients during the past year. After Nancy's stroke on January 22, she spent about ten days at Acute Rehab in Physical and Occupational Rehabilitation. The staff was great and provided her with the therapy and support she really needed to return to her normal life at home at the cabin. She was hoping her room-mate, Hazel would be there as well. Turns out, Hazel was hoping the same thing. Neat! They were each happy to get to see each other again and compare notes!  ;-)

The staff had cake (including sugar free) and punch along with some trail mix at the tables. Here, Dr. Webber, the ARU Director, is getting a sample. He made the rounds of the tables, and spent two nice sessions talking with Nancy, Hazel and others at their table.

Here is a nice close-up of Nancy and Hazel.

Near the end of day, Loretta, the charge nurse most of the time Nancy was there, stopped by. So nice to see her!

A good time was had by all!  ;-)
