PostSubject: Made it to rehab   Tue Feb 10, 2015 4:07 pm

Officially in rehab now.  Even have my keyboatd working, so maybe I'll have fewer typos!

Will be continuing PT tomorrow morning.  Will still be some time before the biopsy/pathology reports are in, but this place feels good.  Hard on Lynn right now.  We thought we would have another day or two to get ready.  She has to work, and they threw us into this at the last minute, but it seems like a good place.  More privacy, etc.   I have a tiny private room, but it's all I need, and they will let Jaycie visit here this weekend.

Can't believe I had brain surger just 6 days ago.  The incision is healing beautifully.  I'm told they took a small piece of my skull, but insist I won't miss it.  Hope that's positive news.  Stories to share with Alice.  I have no hair on the back of my head from my ears down, but maybe it will grow enough for me to try a new hairdo.

I want to say another Thank You to everone here.  You make a great support group.

So very good to hear from you , Ann.    The good news is that you have heard nothing.  I always said if it was bad news, you would HEAR VERY QUICKLY--REMEMBER BAD NEWS TRAVELS FAST.

Which hospital are you in.

Love and prayers,

Alice

University hospitals are usually the best.  Rehab people are usually good, too.  Sorry your room is tiny but glad the facility is good.  Wish you a speedy recovery and so glad you are keeping us informed! Over the years, I feel like we know you a bit and for sure that you are special.

Betty, I just had a meeting with my therapy counselor. Just got here last night and they are setting up my schedule, etc. I have a planning meeting scheduled for Friday and they say htey will give me an estimate then. I probably won't start workouts here until tomorrow morning, which is just as well because Lynn is presenting a program at work today, and Chris won't be able to bring my suitcase until this evening. I understand it will have new workout gear in my new size. That will be fun.

Is the rehab for your RA or for the brain surgery? 
Do not get discouraged.  I am glad your family is near. 
Love,
Betty

Both, Betty. I'm learning how to get around and how to strengthen my legs so maybe I won't fall again.

Dear Ann,

I'm sorry I haven't been around for the last few days. I hope the operation is a great success and you continue to improve day by day. Sending my best wishes for a complete recovery. I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Love,
Shelagh

In a very comfortable holding lounge at the hospital, waiting for Chris to get off work so he can take me home. Lynn is not a happy camper. She is teaching a workshop on Steven Covey that neither she nor her teachers want. One of those dumb central office things that takes them away from their priorities.

Makes me glad I'm retired.

Do not wear a wig or anything that will make your head sweat.  Wear a scrub hat and wash it daily.
Wash your pillowcase daily.  

You do not need an infection in your brain.
