Going home!

After 162 days of recovery, Sister Berta is going home on Friday!!! She and Sister Corita are moving into a newly renovated house within a senior living community. There they will live with their daughter, Kenyauta, their lab, Hershey, and a rotating crew of helpers. Sister Berta will roll over the threshold of her new home in a wheelchair, but her walking is steadily improving. She has told all of us that our job is to stay on her about her exercises and make her keep working. She will have in-home physical therapy to help her transition and Sister Corita to remind her not to get up and walk without a spotter - at least at first. The house has a finished basement where the other kids can spend the night whenever they have a break from work, school and athletics. Sister Berta cannot wait to return to ruling her roost and spending time with her family - on her terms. She and Sister Corita wanted you to know how overwhelmed by all the kindness that has come their way from all of you - in the form of visits, cards, holiday gifts for their children, meals and prayers. They could never have made it through this 162-day ordeal without the support of their many friends.
