Wednesday, January 14
Despite the fact that I dropped both our girls off at the airport at 5 a.m. this morning and the snow and cold weather, it was a good day. When I finally arrived at the hospital, Mr. B was not in his room. He was having an X-ray swallow evaluation to see if he would be able to eat solid food. Before he came back to the room I got the news that he would be transferred to Dodd Hall in the afternoon. At 2 p.m. Mr. Bichler was settling into his new room at Dodd Hall. The good news of the day is that at 6 p.m. a food tray was delivered to his room with roast beef, potatoes and vegetable soup and by 6:15 everything was gone. Mr. Bichler ate like he hadn't eaten in two and a half weeks (which he hadn't!). Tomorrow he gets started with his therapy sessions, a pretty busy schedule beginning at 8:30 a.m. that include physical, occupational, speech and cognition therapy. I imagine he will be pretty tired by 3:30. The bad news for Mr. B is that they don't have "snow days" at Dodd Hall. Every day we enjoy the cards, letters and comments that you have sent. They really brighten his day! Thank you again for all of your support. Just knowing how much you care keeps us going!!
