Mika Nishio update
I will be following Mika Nishio's recovery through her blog. May 11 was Mika's first time out of bed and into a wheelchair. I'm sure a ceiling lift was used for that. She washed her hair which is very difficult to do in bed and she got to roll around outside her room and go outside for the first time. Mika was put in a plastic cast last week and will be fitted with a corset on Saturday. She is also receiving injections for the pain. Mika expects to be moved to a rehab hospital in the next week. Then she can start daily physiotherapy.
