He's determined to conquer all the obstacles and improve as fast as possible.
Hubby was transported from the hospital to the rehab center after lunch today. I hope that what I've heard about this facility is better than what I saw. One of the nurses made the comment that the center was past due for an upgrade and I couldn't agree more. The hallways looked nice but the rooms are lacking. He is in a semi-private room and I can see right now that his room mate is going to get on my nerves if I am in the room the same time he is. He must be about half deaf (I'm not making fun of him) and he keeps his tv on as loud as it can go. He has also appropriated all the chairs and keeps them on his side of the curtain. I had to ask a PA if I could get one.
Hubby's shedule seems to be a busy one. His rehab is split into morning and afternoon sesions with a break for lunch. They prefer visitors to come after 4:00 in the afternoon, so maybe I can get caught up on laundry, etc. before I go out to visit.
No idea yet as to how long he'll stay there. I'm guessing that everything depends on his progress. I hope he'll do well and be home soon.
As far as I know, they've found a room for him at a rehab facility and we're hoping he'll be transported there tomorrow. This facility has a really good reputation for high quality though it's pretty intense. The time I can spend with him will be much less so that he can concentrate on his rehab. If he is transferred there tomorrow I should have a schedule for vistitation.
The therapist has him sitting in a chair for lunch and then a while after. Naturally, he isn't able to put any weight on his leg at all. We're waiting to be told when and where he'll be going for rehab. I'm afraid that he'll be in rehab for quite a while, but maybe things will settle down a little once he's there and is on a regular schedue.
I'm exhausted and naturally my back is acting up out of spite. Some of it is probably sitting and sleeping in the not-so-comfortable hospital chairs, some from staying tensed up and worried.
Hope to have some news tomorrow.
The rest of Monday was spent getting him admitted and more or less sorted out until the orthopedic surgeon could do his exam and check the x-rays. On the plus side, his hip is not broken. On the minus side, his femur is badly broken. The surgery was today. It took quite a few hours and he ended up with a rod and several screws to hold everything together. So . . I'm more or less living there untll it's decided if he can come home or if he'll have to go to a rehab facility first.
Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary. A fancy dinner and champagne is now out and I feel so sorry for him. He's getting little rest and practically no sleep and I'm doing the same. If he has to go to rehab, I won't be able to bring him home til probably New Year's.
That's the story of our holiday. I hope everyone else is having much better luck and a much more Merry Chrstmas!
Question for Netflix users: How does it work? I know that I have to buy a box (I'm looking at Roku III), I don't have Wi-Fi but Roku is HDMI compliant. Are movies and/or TV shows charged individually as well or does the $8.00 per month cover the cost of the shows. Any and all advice greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
This will not be in replacemen of our cable service but in addition to it as I have a bundled service.
