Just finished talking with the Doctor. We're looking at Wednesday - maybe - to
move to a skilled nursing & rehab facility. The one I was hoping for would, in her
current condition, be too demanding. She needs to build up more strength so she
can have the 2 hours morning AND afternoon therapy. She can only do half of that
now. Still has a headache on the right side of her head(stroke side) She is talking
better, using longer sentences and words. Beginning to talk on her own instead of
only responding to questions.
More info to come, as things progress....... :|

Today held, IMO, a breakthrough. She was able to feed herself part of her evening meal :D
I finished feeding her but she did part of it on her own :!: :D

We are waiting on CareFlite ambulance to transfer her to the rehab hospital.

So far, so good. She ate about 20% of her dinner - by herself :D

Thanks :!:

At rehab now, waiting for the transfer ambulance to get here.
After she's checked in, I'm heading home to feed the fur babies,
and myself ;)
