Mike did make the move to rehab today, much to my surprise! I had a friend coming to go out for lunch with me. When she got there, I told her that all of sudden we were headed downstairs. Fortunately she was able to wait long enough for us to grab a quick lunch at Cafe Presto.
This roommate situation is much better than last time. Mel is an older gentleman from around here who had a logging accident and is now in a wheelchair. He is very quiet, respectful, and interesting to talk to. He took it upon himself to encourage Mike tonight!
We also had a group of Mennonites stop in to sing tonight. There were probably about 10 of them and they sounded beautiful. It made me realize how much I missed being at church the last three weeks.
Tomorrow everything really starts up. Mike will have a schedule with the bare minimum to start out with. As his strength builds up, they will increase his activities. They are also watching his calorie intake make sure he is eating enough. They did not do that last time. I’m sure our friend Marla the dietician is glad to hear that! The funny thing about his diet is that he needs to let people know if he suddenly wants to eat large amounts of green vegetables, as this would seriously mess with his coumadin levels!
I’m about to head out. Since Mike has a roommate, I am not allowed to spend the night on a cot. I am confident in the nursing care so far, which is good. Mike is comfortable with it, which is the most important thing. Good night!
