Back in the Gym at Walter Reed – Bethesda

It has been several months since my father has been in the outpatient gym at Walter Reed – Bethesda. As his 100th Medicare Day approaches, he will be released from rehab and will finally come home.

Yesterday, he had his evaluation with the therapist. 


He was able to show the therapist how he transfers from his wheelchair to the bed/therapy table.

  
And my dad’s question is always the same, how to use the bathroom. So we took a trip over to the bathroom and the therapist gave him a few ways to transfer from wheelchair to toilet. It will be easier when using his prosthetics –we’ll not in the beginning but he’ll get the hang of it.
