Rehabin' With Rob (not) in the Little RV

Rob's hospital stay continues but now he is in the rehabilitation hospital. He is still in the ICU but I can see small improvements every day. 

They started his physical therapy yesterday and he was able to sit up on the edge of the bed a couple of times. His speech and thoughts become more clear daily and he seems more and more like himself.

In fact, today his nurse and I got him into a shower chair and whisked him down the hall to the shower. I got him scrubbed up as clean as possible while sitting in a chair but he felt almost human (if not extremely tired) after that shower. 

The food is much better in the new hospital. That is a bonus for both of us!

Today he wanted to hear the whole story of what he has been through in the last month so I told him. Fortunately, he doesn't remember anything. But, he has been struggling to understand why he is having to spend time in rehabilitation rather than at home. I think the trip to the shower and the extreme exhaustion afterward showed him that he needs some help getting on his feet again.
