This morning, they had Rick up bright and early with the physical and occupational therapists. He spent about 2 minutes on the walker and asked to be "upgraded" to crutches. He then did the full length of the hall and back and showed them he could get up and down from the toilet and in and out of bed. The therapists were giddy at his ability to get around. We're hoping he can come home tomorrow or Sunday and then we'll get a little routine established here. He was also taken off IV meds and fluids and oxygen late this morning, which is another good sign of his improvement.
