My hubby seemed like his cantankerous old self again. If only he would stand & walk by himself I / we would be so happy. As it stands now ( pun intended) they use a mechanical device that is in affect a sling or hammock under his tush to help him to stand. I am going in at 9am to help to encourage him during his physical therapy sessions. I look him in the eye & tell him that I am not giving up on him. When gets angry I say - " Good !!! Now use that anger for energy to fuel you. Put that energy into your legs -stand up & walk out of here. You have to want it . The desire has to come from deep down inside of you".
I hope. That these words sink in & take root. I know that he has Alzheimer's but I refuse to surrender my husband to it.
