I made it safely up & down the basement stairs. Can we all say amen? Glory hallelujah! PTL & pass the peanuts! Way To Go, Linda! This is a huge step to getting this woman out of my home & feeling a bit less homebound. Get the feeling I found this a bit exciting? husband just needs to make a few, simple & affordable adjustments on the hand rail & I'm set. Last in home PT appointment is this coming Friday & then I transfer to outpatient facility for cont'd PT. We're having fun now!
