Tom made the trek to Fairlawn Rehab Hospital on Friday evening and I made my journey back to work the same night. Tom was evaluated on Sat. by physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy (for eating purposes), and dietary (to provide optimal nutrition for healing). At this point they are thinking he will be at Fairlawn for a week to 10 days but maybe longer because he is going to go for his skin graft surgery in the near future. We have to call today to schedule appts with his general surgeon and his plastic surgeon for next week. Hopefully all will look good and the skin graft can be scheduled for early May. Tom had a busy weekend with lots of visitors...one of the most exciting visits was with Trot, our Boston terrier who has been missing his "dad" something terrible. Tom was able to get outside and enjoy some sunshine with good friends which was uplifting after being stuck inside for 3 1/2 weeks. The girls were excited to visit daddy and see him without his "rubber hose up his nose". All in all it was a good weekend...things are definitely looking up!
