Original PrayerLine Request

More On "WS needs", originally posted on 12/5/2017:
"After falls and a fracture he had hip surgery Sep 2. From Sep 23 to Nov 23 he was in a distant Rehab unit for physiotherapy, walking between bars and pulling pulleys. He made very little progress learning to self-propel in a wheel chair. Back in Assisted Living he self-propels it slowly, poorly. To save time understaffed caregivers push his wheelchair. He wants to walk again with his walker or a better one, but lies in bed too much, not able to get up and do exercises alone. Please pray for the kinds of daily staffing he needs and that he won't fall again."
Update posted on 12/22/2017: Dec 22 at 8.30AM he'll be seen by an OT and a techician with a new upright walker where you walk within, with the seat turned up. This is better than most where you lean forward because your knees hit the seat/framework. The OT's concern is to prevent falls. WS also has Cancer of the prostate, urine and stool incontinence. Pray for a subsidized opening in residential care with an interesting activity program, near enough for his sisters to visit.
