Some Physical Therapy Before Surgery

Holly has started some physical therapy in preparation for her surgery, update here: "They never do both sides at once, they will see how I do with the left side first, which is the worst side. I went to physical therapy the other day for the first time, I had to do a few exercises and then showed me what to expect for after....its all about retraining my brain to take over the other side to balance, its hard to explain on here...but amazingly my brain is already trying to compensate for my balance issues now and I'm doing pretty good, so hopefully after surgery I'll have the same luck...There are a lot of unanswered questions, and I can only pray to God to help see me through this and I can't wait to live life again!"
