Stephen update

Good morning my wonderful friends, Stephen is almost definitely coming home next Wednesday the 16th :o)  
His occupational therapist came out to inspect his new bedroom for suitability yesterday and gave it a big thumbs up. She also measured up for a second stair rail so he has one each side, one for going up and one for going down, and for grab rails each side of the front door, and approved a chair for him so it all rests now with his progression. 
I was in the gym yesterday where Stephen and others were having a little competition trying to get a basketball into the net and was amazed at his progress. He can now get up off the bed himself without holding on to anything, but then he needs to have a tripod stick to walk. His walking is getting stronger every day, they just have someone walking behind him in case he falls but they don't need to help him now.
They don't need to send a hospital bed home with him so I have now bought him a new bed which will be delivered the day before he comes home.
Today I am having a day off and spending it with my cousin and we will be going out for a pub lunch, then I will spend the evening with my daughter Susan. It is her first day back at work today.
I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to all of you for your support and prayers, from Stephen and from me :o)

Oh Jackie, this is such wonderful news! I am so happy for him and for all of you. I know each day will bring small steps towards a full recovery. But those small steps sure add up! Sorry I haven't been by - my daughter is still having issues and I caught a rotten cold. Always something! Big hugs to you, Joanne :)
