You know, I hardly know what to say! I am dumbfounded, astonished, in awe of how God has worked in John's life and death battle......
JOHN COMES HOME TOMORROW~!!!
The recovery is not complete. He has weeks of physical therapy to get back to "normal." But he is coming home!
The tracheotomy is out, he is breathing just plain ole, normal air, walking without assistance.
He gets confused at time and still has some fine motor skills to work on, but wow, that's nothing compared to all that has happened to him.
He is considering talking to a therapist friend. His loss of time / space bothers him. I cannot imagine loosing six weeks of my life. He talks about tulips...they are long gone. Easter, April Fools Day, etc. One nice thing he has missed is all this politics rhetoric!
One thing that astonished me is how can a man who entered the E.D. / E.R. (they now call the emergencyf room the emergency department) with only the clothes on his back need two huge plastic bags of "stuff" to take home.
We hope to stay here in the motorhome until the house sells. We had a showing tonight...of course, no feedback yet.
On the motorhome subject, there are some repairs needed. As I have stayed here in the motorhome, I have had no "house" lights. The motorhome is plugged into our house electricity so I have a working microwave, electric outlets and the television....but the technician tells me that while plugged into the home power, we should be recharging the "house" batteries. Something is wrong.
We used Edmundson RV in Taylorsville, IN for repairs. But if you have been following my blog for a long time, you will see that Edmundson's service department leaves much to be desired. So much that I would not recommend that you stop there for repair.
We are going to try Family RV Rental in Whiteland, IN. They are just south of Indianapolis right off I 65 at the Whiteland exit. I spoke with them today and explained that John is leaving the hospital tomorrow and asked if we could park there if repairs would take more than a day. Of all things, the technician said that he would speak with the owner and most likely they will be able to come to us since we live fairly close to I 65 (15 minutes).
If their service and repairs are good, you will be hearing raves from us. If not, I will tell you the facts.
It is getting late. I need to get some sleep!
Once again, I want to thank each and every one of you for your kind thoughts and prayers.
The staff at Kindred Hospital all are in awe of the progress John has made! He makes that hospital look like miracle workers! But...........we know who the miracle worker is! And to God be the glory!
Without your prayers, John would still be in the hospital tomorrow. The doctors said he would be there until, at the earliest, the first of June...probably till the middle of June. Tomorrow.....May 2!
Here we are at the second of May and John is coming home! To God be the glory, great things He has done!
Thank you to each and every one of you for your prayers for John's recovery. I wish I could hug each one of you. How I wish we all could have a huge cook out to celebrate. Maybe......someday soon!
