After her recovery period, Nicole was groggy and drifted in and out of sleep. She was soon moved to her room, where she did much the same thing for a while.
Eventually the physical therapist came to teach her to walk again. Nicole met this with a lot of resistance, as she was in a considerable amount of pain while on her feet. However, sometime later I came back after checking on the dogs, and found that she had been walking up and down the corridor outside her room (walker assisted), and was no longer in excruciating pain. Tomorrow she gets to come home!
