Our second full day at Mercy SNF went really well. The staff is super quick to respond to the "button"--the food is much better--the room is excellent--the TV and remote are good (this is very important when only your fingers work) and Cris had lots of company which really made him feel loved. He wouldn't have been ready for company earlier, but it was perfect timing today.
The physical therapist worked with him for about 1/2 hour, moving legs, arms and standing him up a few times. It wasn't too bad and he felt good to get off his back a bit. So we've moved past "survival mode" and are on to "we have a plan now let's get to it".
Again, Nick spent most of the day with Dad watching football which left me free to play with grandkids. They left about 4:30 for Henderson and we settled in for evening visitors.
Our Bishop and his wife and his second counselor came for a visit, gave us the sacrament and sister Lewis played her cello. It was awesome and helped us feel the Sunday spirit.
