Wow, what a place. The night was somewhat restless because they were turning and checking him. It was wonderful to sleep in the same room with him. The cot was shorter than the bed but we could still hold hands when he was turned my direction.
Early this morning Respiratory Therapy came in, then the Dr.'s, then Occupational Therapy came in and we got him dressed. They were showing me how to help him get dressed. Then speech therapy came in and worked with him. left for 30 min. and now they are back. He will see the psychologist today and physical therapy. They have a motorized wheelchair that they are hoping to get him into today.
They are telling him that tomorrow they will start working to get that swallow back. They will try a few things and then do another swallow test. Everyone so far seems to be very nice. I believe today is about getting used to everything but I know he is ready to get up and go.
He probably won't be free until after 4:00 so that would be a good time to come and visit. Everyday is different and every day they get a new schedule. I was going to post his schedule but it's on the bed and I'm sitting on the floor while they work with him. Maybe I'll get tomorrow schedule posted. That way everyone knows what is going on and when would be a good time to come by.
I'll post more as I know it!
