Cottage Grove woman awarded for rehab work
Pam Schmuki spent three years bed-ridden, on oxygen most of the time, and suffering from a failing liver. She had no muscle tone in her body and she couldn’t read, write, speak fluently or even pull a loose T-shirt over her head.
Now the Cottage Grove woman is swimming, line dancing and practicing Tai Chi.
“I’m one of your walking miracles here,” the 68-year-old said. “Miracles happen. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other.”
