Not a lot to tell you, but. . .
It looks like Jim will come home. He got the okay to put weight on his right wrist which was the stumbling block. He needs to be able to do transfers from the bed to the chair, etc. Don’t know when that will be accomplished as today was his first day working on it. But, he’s excited and it looks good.
We also found out he can put weight on his left leg Oct. 1, his right leg Oct. 18. Yes, there was some confusion there–we thought he could do that now, but no way. So he’ll come home for awhile and go back when he can start working.
Meanwhile, he looks better every day–and he’s pretty much the old Jim as many of you know. He’s wearing clothes (rather than the ill begotten hospital gown) does his morning routine, etc. He nods off sometimes during the day, but that’s to be expected. He still has some medication and besides–this is big doings to him! Tires a guy out.
Having said all that–have you figured out yet–it could change in a second? One day I’m getting rent-a-ramps and the next day I’m checking out different facilities. I guess they’ll know when they know. Meanwhile he looks great and is getting healthy. Who could ask for anything more?
Till next time,
