Much better day today in regards to Rick's endurance and strength. I had a nice little blessing first thing this morning...there was actually hot water in the shower! Yea! Usually it's just luke warm. Rick didn't nap as much and did really good during therapy. Supper was canned soup and salad, so I ordered out from a little cafe in Anna called Crows. We had grilled porkchops, mashed taters, beans, fried green tomatoes and rolls! Ya boy!
I got a call from TLC today saying that we cannot transfer for 2 more weeks. The patient that they thought was discharging is getting to stay 2 more weeks. This patient has not been progressing and his insurance was not going to pay for more therapy, but then at the last minute changed their mind. I'm not happy about it, but at the same time I'm glad that guy got 2 more weeks...there could be a time when we're begging for 2 more weeks. And, as long as I'm here, I think Rick will get what he needs.
Well, time to get Rick in the shower and in bed. He's actually sitting on the couch watching the World Series with me, but at 8:30 it's almost like a switch turns off and he's out!
