Thursday. June 26

Sorry , I have  been  a little preoccupied. Long days  and I had to change hotels again.
There were a couple of days that caused some set backs,  but all is good now.
. Mr. Wong is finally moving into a positive mode.
All his extra life line attachments , I.V. , epidural, antibiotics and fluids , have all been removed. He is back on his normal cocktail of meds including his inhalers.and some pain meds to help the broken parts. His Back , 5 ribs and pelvic.
Physical therapy has him walking the halls. just like all the other invalids.(but slower). He sports the evening  gown quite well.. No tushy showing. The R.N. Call them jonnies and make sure it is tucked into his back brace  just right
He still has an Eco and a lung test to go. Hopefully into rehab tomorrow ......
occupational therapy will teach me how to put on the back brace. It is a must. He is not allowed to be up more than a 30' angle without it.
To be continued ..... Almost home.....
Have great day........

Saturday, day 12

Upon walking into Mr. Wong's room, a greeting of GOOD MORNING: makes me know that he working harder and ready for healing challenges. 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞
His appetite has improved. He is asking for food, actually feeling hungry. All of this will help his recovery. Strength builders.
It is the weekend. So. Patients progress seems to be a very slow pace. (The norm for all hospitals)
He is using the phone for texting. Any messages that require a response would help.
There won't be much improvement over the weekend : short staff and a new floor with a completely different routine(if any)
Moving estimate for travel home yet.
