TPS7 Deleted Session November 7, 1983 4/23 (17%) leg motions foot darlene streak

(The day was warm—50 degrees—and sunny. When I got to room 330 I saw that Jane had the patches back on her right elbow and the little toes of her left foot. Not that they had broken out again—but this morning Georgia and Cathy had put them on just to protect those areas. I didn’t know whether to rip them off or not [I did take the one off the elbow later in the afternoon]. The staff had also told Jane that it looked like she may develop a sore in a new spot on a shoulder blade, so they’d slapped a dressing there too. I meant to investigate that one when I turned Jane later in the day, but forgot to. She said nothing there has bothered her.

(4:20. A few left leg motions. “It’s all right, don’t worry about the right leg,” Jane said several times as she lifted her left leg and rotated her foot at the ankle gently. Her motions today were subdued, her grunts and breathing not so prominent. She said she didn’t try to do much in hydro because of the water: “I guess that’s just the way different people do it.”

(4:25. Left foot, head, moving gently. “My right leg is moving, but I guess you can’t even tell by looking at it,” she said. I saw a few spasmodic motions around the knee area. Jane lay with her hands crossed on her chest. I told her the right leg was starting, and that was good. She lifted her left leg and moved the foot. “When the right foot moves, the right ankle, then I stop,” Jane said. “I shouldn’t do that.” I reminded her that yesterday Seth had said the right leg discomfort was only temporary. She moved her head and torso up off the bed a bit, then groaned: “That right foot tried to come up off the bed.”

(Jane ate another good supper. I told her its obvious now that her body is filling itself in gradually, for it has a softer look. As I was getting ready to leave after reading her the prayer at 7:00 PM, Jane said she could feel that she could “take off” with more motions right then. Her left foot was moving. I told her that it was safe for her to move after I left—that is, when she was alone, I’d pulled up the guardrails, so she was in no danger of falling out of bed, etc. She knew that, and said she would do some movements. It was another sign of the body’s willingness to move at any time, I thought.
