On Easter Sunday, my husband’s mom suffered a stroke. After a week at the hospital she moved to a rehabilitation center, where she is receiving physical, speech and occupational therapy. Since we are frequent visitors, I asked if we could bring Parker. Now, he spends his weekends getting attention from staff and resident dog- and cat-people. But, he’s always willing to give Bob’s mom his brand of Cavalier nap therapy. In just a few weeks, she has already made progress. Is it due, in part, to Parker’s therapy? I bet he’d like to think so.
