5/7/12 Bill needs a REST!
Bill gets breakfast and showers in the a.m and gets dressed. That in itself is a whole big time consuming ordeal. Then about 10-10:30 a.m. they come and get him for an hour of therapy. After that he somehow eats his lunch at 12 noon...and is again tired from the complete ordeal so he goes to sleep and gets up about 3:30 to catch the afternoon therapy..and then dinner at 5 pm..and so the day goes. No! he does not catch up on his sleep. The doctor told us he would be like this for at least three months. Alot of sleep is needed for his healing. It is a hard difficult journey. Something new every day. This week he has to learn how to sit in the backseat of the car, so we can go to the doctor for his appointments. That means and extra cushion to make it easier to get in the car to sit on. He cannot sit in the front seat because of the airbags were to go off..it would impair his chest surgery.
