Tuesday was a "happening" day. But it all started Sunday when a nurse discovered that a patient had a strange rash on her arms and legs. Scrapings were sent to the laboratory and the diagnosis was Scabies.
The Kindred "team" went to work. Every inch of the hospital was sanitized. Curtains were removed. One room was sanitized. A patient was treated and moved into the clean room then the patent's room was treated and the next patient was moved into that room until every patient on all floors was treated and moved into a clean room. Beds were removed and new, sanitized beds were brought in. Every patients other furniture moved with the them. This procedure continued for about twenty four hours.
Tuesday morning John said he was "good to go." What wonderful words. Words that I had waited what seems like an eternity to hear.
We finally were able to leave the hospital around two o'clock. The wait was hard on John. He was so ready to leave, but had to wait for paperwork.
I finally convinced him to take off the Posy / walking belt. I said "throw that thing away" and he responds with "I want it to use on my kayak." Yep, he's ready to get on the road.
|Doesn't he look wonderful?!?!|
Our ride home was confusing for him. The bright sunlight, the traffic noise all seemed to assault his senses but he handled it quite well as we talked about his feelings as we drove the ten short minutes home.
When we arrived home, I drove throughout the yard and around the house so he could see everything Cruz, Bob, and I had done. When I got back to the drive he insisted on getting out of the car by himself. I insisted that he stand there until I could get around to take another photo of him. He headed into the house to see how we had finished preparing the house for "show and sell|." After the "photo session," and his tour he went straight to the motorhome and claimed his seat! He has claimed the motorhome as our residence and we have continued to stay.
|looks like too much fun here!|
Jamie is a survivor of a malignant brain tumor resulting in surgery, some memory problems and seizures. He is a miracle man in his own way.
Would you believe that after P.T. John wanted to go to our favorite Mexican restaurant, El Rodeo for lunch? Yep, that's John. After lunch, he crashed a good crash at home.
|NO....my feet are not blue!|
Friday brought visitors for John and a pedicure for me! We both were totally delighted.
Today was grandson, Ross' birthday party. His gift concerned us for just a bit. We went on line to Toy'sRUs website and found a Cars themed
bicycle. He loves anything Cars and he was thrilled with a shiny new bicycle.
We are now home and tomorrow will be another rest day before Physical Therapy on Monday.
Again, thank you for your prayers and thoughts!
God Bless you all!
