Hi there, 10/29/10
Well, Mom was discharged from the hospital last Monday and transferred to a medical rehab facility. She will be here at least 3 weeks then, depending on her recovery rate, she may be sent home with a healthcare worker or sent to a long-term rehab facility. We had a staff review with her and all her therapists today. They all reported she was progressing VERY, VERY well. She was started on solid foods today, but is still on pureed (spelling ) liquids until next Monday when they will reevaluate. All here are GREAT with her. She still has an oxygen tube, but that too will probably go away next week.
If you'd like to check out the facility; it is...http://www.texasneurorehab.com/bb/index.php
If you’d like to send a card, she would really enjoy that too. You can send it to her home address where we are staying. We visit her everyday and post the cards on her bulletin board.
Her address is:
6412 Sun Strip Drive
Austin, TX 78745
Things will be a little easier (for me) from now on. I have made arrangements with Mom’s cable company to rent wireless service at her house while we are here (YEAH!!!) so I won’t have to lug the laptop to the rehab or other places to log on.
Thanks again for all the prayers being lifted literally “worldwide”! I so appreciate the support from my friend is the various sites I belong to.
