It's All Good ...

Except for a few minor things ... Ron was moved from his room over to the Sanford Rehab Unit late yesterday. His therapy starts at 9:00 this morning and will take up the majority of the day. I am hoping that he can keep up with the program. It's tough but he qualifies now that he's medically stable. Pray for him ... The Wiggle Worm wiggled from 11:00 PM until 6:00 AM. He wants to sleep now but that's not an option.

The toasted cinnamon bagels are on the way and I've put strong coffee in his IV. Our "break out" goal is September 10th for both sanity and insurance purposes. I can bring the German Shepherd girl here to his room this weekend perhaps.

A story to leave you with ... the morning Ron regained consciousness in ICU I told him I was going to step down the hallway to make a few telephone calls. I was already in my private spot located quite a ways from his unit ... I heard him call out to me in desperation, "Where'ssssssssssss Ruuuuuuuuuuubbbbbbbbbbbyyyyyyyyyyyy"?


  1. This is good news. He is making progress. At first when you told of his "accident" I had no idea how serious this was.
    I have included Ron in my nightly prayers, really.
    I hope Ruby gets to see him....
    Well wishes from Florida.

  2. Baby steps. He'll get there, Laurie.
    Take it one day at a time girl.
    Live in "day tight compartments".

    That's how I did it when my son was in the hospital for 5 1/2 months.

    You can do it. :-)


  3. God bless you both as your start on the road to going HOME! It sounds as if he has the heart of a lion, which is a big help. Being so strong, he will probably work as hard as he can so that you can go back and be together at home as soon as possible.

    You are a wonderful companion; I'm glad that you are taking notes of the funny moments for him. He will probably love hearing them, later. I know that Katie loved the stories of what she said and did when she was sedated. She made us tell them to her again and again.
