It takes a floor to raise a giant is what I will say about the team at Tuckerman. When I was admitted I was told I wouldn’t be able to walk, hold things and do anything for myself anymore like I used to. I doubted myself the first day I was admitted and my first day of physical therapy riding a bike. I said to myself what good can riding a bike do to make me walk again. Then came Terry “Rambo” and Shimoli “Shortie” who worked me out without letting me know what was going to happen every day. They challenged me by putting me through exercises and drills I wasn’t expecting. Every day I couldn’t wait to go into therapy to get my mobility back. Terry and Shimoli made me get my confidence back, something I didn’t have when I was admitted. One thing they taught me was not to give up, everything is possible and to not let my confidence overstep my abilities. Although therapy played a huge role in my recovery, the staff also played a wonderful role in getting me where I am. Michelle (nurse) is a true definition of what a nurse is and what nursing is all about. Getrude, (GNA) you can’t turn around without her being right there to give a helping hand. To all the Tuckerman Rehabilitation staff, thank you for everything. Without your kindness, help, love, and encouragement my transition and ability to live a regular life would not have been possible. Thank you all.
