Since the initial crises has passed and we now have just about everyone in the know (It is interesting reading e-mails from people that Peter has a business relationship with and they don’t know what is going on), we are now in the what is next portion for this saga.
What is next is in patient rehabilitation. We are working on the where, how, and who and still awaiting the when. And they can’t give us an exact when because a number things have to be in place and Peter’s vitals have to be consistently at a certain level before they will even think of releasing him. Until that happens, we are in a holding pattern.
Where is going to be dependent on the Insurance company. (You honestly don’t know how many times I have thanked G-d that we have insurance although this is going to be expensive endeavor no matter what kind of insurance one has) The Insurance company is deciding what they are going to pay for. We have two possibilities that both take our insurance. I am waiting to hear what the decision was from that to figure out the next step.
So we are in the waiting game for now.
Peter is doing better every day. Yesterday he was able to lift up his right arm by himself and the fingers are coming back a little more every day. He can stand up but still can’t walk and the standing only lasts for so long. His face is even more normal than the day before. And he sat up in a chair for the first time since Saturday which he was very happy about and I was thrilled. The more he can get up, the sooner he gets out and onto the next step of the journey.
Keep those good thoughts coming. Peter says it is both gratifying and humbling about the number of people who are praying for them and keeping him in their thoughts and he appreciates and is thankful to each and every one of you.
Caroline has gone into stoic mode and is holding up rather well all things considered.
My sense of time is shot. I had to look at the computer to see what day it was. Time seems to have expanded and contracted all at the same time.
I am grateful for progress on so many fronts.
