News update on Lisa, Don and the family.
Lisa came home from the hospital for good on the 19th of Jan. This picture is of her and sweet Chloe on their first night home together. ">There are more pictures on Lisa's website 'Lisa's Story'. Here is the link from a post I had made earlier about her. My sister has been in touch with Don and he is so glad to have his wife home again. He says the work getting the house accessible is worth having Lisa there with him and the kids. The kids are adjusting to their mom and her different ways of doing things now. Don told my sister, that when he and the kids went to the hospital on New Years Eve, they got there early, and surprised Lisa in the bathroom putting on her makeup with her stumps. She was hoping to surprise them by being all dressed up. We also found out that Lisa was a Mary Kay Consultant prior to her going into the hospital.
I am a physical therapist by trade, and see so much everyday in my practice, yet it still amazes me at times what a person can go thru and still come out whole on the other side. Lisa is as whole as if she still had her legs and hands. She is still Lisa, mommy, daughter, friend, lover and all the many names that described her before she became ill.
