Rob had a great report from the doctor this morning! She said to keep up the great work! He has been working hard on walking, and gets a foot sticker each time he does. It’s a BIG accomplishment, and I’m so proud of how far he has come since being here, and I know ya’ll are too!!
According to Transplant Unit’s Motivated and Moving information sheet:
“Exercise has been proven to help patients maintain or improve their quality of life. It can help reduce pain, nausea, and diarrhea as well as anxiety and depression.
For our transplant patients, walking can reduce hospital stays with faster engraftment times as well as reduce the number of transfusions patients need by improving hemoglobin levels.”
Thank you for being here, Keep Pounding Rob team!!
