REHAB At Last!

Today Don insisted that I take a day off. But I said to let me know if they were going to move him to the Rehab unit, so I could pack up his computer and other electronic items, as well as to see Rehab and his new room.

Here’s a picture for Facebook to grab because it keeps wanting to post one from Jan & Chuck Moore’s blog!


Just as I was getting into a new knitting project that proved to be quite challenging (Entrelac, for you knitters out there), about 1:30 pm Don called to see if I could drop everything and get to the hospital. Of course I could – I wouldn’t miss it for anything!

The afternoon was quite busy, getting him moved and situated (next to a window again – hurray!), talking with nurses, techs and docs, reviewing his meds and having him examined for bumps, sores, bruises, etc. I stayed long enough to help him with dinner and make sure his phone, Kindle and Bluetooth headset were all charged up.

About 6 pm I left the hospital, stopped for a quick bite to eat at Burger King, went to Walmart for a few more items as he gets to wear real clothes now, and headed for home. I packed a couple of bags with shorts, shirts, underwear and socks. He has to wear sneakers for his workouts, so I bought him a cheap pair with Velcro fasteners – Old Guy shoes!

The afternoon seemed like it was a full working day. But I’m ecstatic that he’s beginning the last major stage of recovery!

Thanks again to everyone who has prayed, sent caring thoughts, and cheered both of us on during the past 47 days. It’s been a long haul and it’s not over yet. In fact we think this might be when the hard work begins. But we can see the light at the end of the tunnel and that’s a great thing!


  1. Cheering loudly for Team Don and Sharon! Old Guy Shoes will be wonderful. Now get him an "OLD GUYS RULE" t-shirt.

  3. Great news! Take it one day at a time. Count those small victories!!

  4. So wonderful to hear. I think you are right about the hard part coming now. Rehab is a lot of hard work. We continue to pray for you both.

  5. That is great news, Sharon!! Yes, the hard work is beginning, but with all he has accomplished just getting out of the hosppital, I think he is up for the challenge! Go, Don, go!

  6. I did a bit of entrelac once, just to see if I could do it. I could, and I loved it... but I had to follow directions very carefully! Glad Don is getting better, best news of all.


Please tell me what you think, either here, on Facebook, or by email. I *love* comments!
