    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hi jwp86....has John had any physical therapy in the hospital? It sounds like at the very least he needs to have some gentle range of motion exercises done while he is in bed. The Dementia is adding to the problem I have no doubt. I assume before he went into the hospital is was walking?
