Posted on August 16, 2017Dad's in rehab!!!!!
His first day went well! He worked his butt off! His Drs and therapist are going to work with him so hard that they are giving him a going home date of Sept 5th!!! Yep that's my birthday! What a great day to come home! I'll be there with the family to welcome him home with own arms love and praises!
Now things could happen that could delay that date, but if he works hard enough (which I know he will) that's the date they are going for! Once he is done there it will be home health or if he is strong enough just out patient after this!
Keep the prayers coming that dad works hard. Pay no see backs and that he will be home soon.
He can now have pureed food which is a good step in the food dept. They are working on getting his trach out. And other then that rehabing like crazy! So crazy to think that he is so close to home. That he almost died and almost coded to coming home. He survived! I can not wait for the day he does! I'm hoping it is my bday that would be the best present I have ever received!

Posted on August 11, 2017Sorry for the late update but nothing really has been going on.
Dad's doing great with his PT and OT.
Dad hasn't had to use his pacemaker at all.
He is working strengthening his throat so he can get his trach out. Speech had him eat apple sauce yesterday today pudding. So he is doing well with that also.
Now every time I have uttered these words something happens and it sets us back. I am going to take a chance and utter these words one more time. Pray that he samtays healthy and that no more little or big bumps happen.
Dad's moving to rehab Monday! He is the stages to get discharged and moving Monday. Finally getting stronger and better and then he will get to come home and go to an out patient program.
Keep the prayers coming that he does well and gets healthy enough to come home!

Posted on August 3, 2017So Dad's back on the rehab floor. It took Mom to loose her shit to do it though.
Dad's pace maker/difibulator is in. It seems to be doing it's job. He has had no problems with his heart going to low or to high. He was in the cardiac icu for 9 days. So this has set us back. No rehab in 9 days and they didn't treat him very well up there either. Mom lost her mind and in one day he was moved back to the floor where he belongs. Moms happy, dads happy, I am happy. Let's get him out of the hospital and on to rehab and get him home!
I haven't seen dad in almost 3 weeks. I now can drive today so I was able to see him. He looks good. Still really skinny but we need him strong and get that trach out so he can eat. It was Dad though his skin is healed on his face no more open wounds or black stuff or nothing his actual face! He was talking a lot and very alert. We had a great time visiting. I even got mom out early and we had lunch.
He is going to be rehabing 4 times a week until he is ready to go to the extended rehab. I will let you know when he is moving.
I am really sorry I haven't posted in a while I have been busy taking care of two kids with my hubby. I promise I will update more. But all you guys should know hopefully we have hit our last bump in the road to recovery. Dad should be moving out of the hospital and going on and getting stronger so he can come home and we can forget the last 10-11 weeks of hell and have our lives back mostly mom's! Continue the prayers that we can get him home soon. Get him to rehab. For no more small bumps or big bumps! Thank you!
