Mother returns home following chronic heart failure just in time for her son’s birthday celebration

In March, Lisa Scott arrived at Encompass Health Rehabilitation Institute of Tucson to begin rehabilitative therapy after suffering from septic shock due to chronic heart failure. Following this tragic incident, she was left debilitated due to the damaged nerve tissue in her hands and feet. Despite her diagnosis, Lisa has remained resilient and dedicated to gaining her independence back. In just three weeks, she has made great strides toward her goal of getting back home to her loving husband and two sons. With the help of her therapy team, Lisa has regained strength, improved her range of motion and is now able to walk with the assistance of her customized walking boots. Lisa says her life has been changed by the care she received at Encompass Health of Tucson, and she is grateful to make it home in time to celebrate the birthday of her son.
