Lin has a 24 hour nursing aide, Esther and Shahzie, alternating during the week and the weekend. We are so grateful to our good friend, Jacquie, who got us off to a wonderful start with home care. This is an area she knows, as a gerontologist, and her connections and generousity have made a difficult transition much easier than we anticipated. There is no question that Lin's rate of improvement is faster at home than it would be in a nursing facility, and she really didn't have the energy to qualify for the three hours of active physiotherapy at a rehabilitation facility.
I thought that I would just mention a few of our many wonderful friends who have done so much to cheer and support us at this critical time. Lin had many visitors in the hospital, including Sherry, Susan, Diana, Cathy, Ramani, Sue and Moh, Dave, Barbara, and I'm sure I'm leaving out several more.
Flowers just kept coming. From Jill and Craig and Joanne, Moh and Sue, Amber and David, Susan, MMR.
Many, many concerned phone calls from family and friends. Enough cards to ensure Hallmark's profitability for the next decade!
To all of you and those that I haven't mentioned, and most of all, for Lin's ongoing progress, it is an early Thanksgiving.
