Day 12 in a series: “REHABILITATION”



I couldn’t get into a rehabilitation facility because of all the complications I presented. God sent us an angel in disguise when we couldn’t get me into a rehab facility.


I asked her: “what are we supposed to do? You don’t want me here - you need the bed. I cant get into rehab; I can’t go home - Kathy can’t take care of me.” What are we supposed to do? She arranged a meeting. The result: I was soon in another hospital that had superior rehab facilities in a week - the closest one to our home. Exactly what we had prayed for!


All told, It took about two months to get me into a rehab facility. Initially, they told me that I had lost 80% of my functionality on my left side and about 20% on my right, so rehab was a given. At first, even sitting up was impossible. I couldn’t support myself. The competition for rehab beds is fierce, so finding a rehabilitation facility took some time. We had prayed for a facility that was close. I presented several complicating issues: the trachea, diabetes, dialysis, and my bed sore wound. Various facilities were considered: Richmond, Washington, and even Connecticut. Finally our prayers were answered, and Virginia Baptist Hospital took me. It was the closest facility to our house! Lisa, Sara and Andrew were excellent.


REAL FOOD!


Courtney, a speech therapist at Virginia Baptist Hospital, listened to me patiently re: the food issue and changed my diet. (You'll recall that I had been restricted to a pureed food diet) Canned green beans never tasted so heavenly. However the trachea remained. I continued to improve, and the physical therapy was most profitable.
