Merry Christmas and God Bless You Everyone

Ms. Fran is home and getting better every day. She still has a ways to go but is doing her physical therapy everyday. She says no pain no gain and does everything ask of her. This photo is right after we gave her a bath and got her ready for bed. She wanted me to tell all of you thank you very much for the cards and prayers. She wishes you a very merry Christmas and hope God blesses each and everyone of you. My friend is doing really well. She is talking and eating good and can move her legs a little. Her left arm and hand are still swollen and hard to move but she can use her right hand normally. This morning she and I talked like we did before her stroke. This evening she helped turn herself for her bath and talked to me about things that I had told her years ago. We took a baby bunny over and she snuggled with it for a long time. I got a very special Christmas present this year. I got my friend back!

Hello Peggy - Merry Christmas from Down Under

Ms Fran has certainly come a long way in a short time. Her positive attitude will be a help to her over the next few months and well into next year. Tell her Spring is round the corner and see her smile.

Take care - oh I found you via Lib and we'd call you 'a great mate' meaning a true friend

Such good news for you and your friend Fran. Nice to hear about the therapeutic bunny! We all could use a cuddle occasionally.

Merry Christmas to you and Fran and may the New Year be enriching for both of you.

Ms. Fran's recovery sounds very encouraging, Peggy! I will continue to pray for her, that she will be well enough to return home soon.
