Thursday Feb. 25

It's Thursday but it feels like Friday because as of tonight I'm done working for the week. I get tomorrow off from school and from the Pharmacy. I'm so excited. I'm going to SL to visit Dan. Tessha's been down there during the transition to the Rehab. Center (Willow Wood). And now that she's home, I'll head down tomorrow morning.

She has kept me up on all the happenings and so have the nurses at the center. In fact, today I received several calls. They tell me that last night Dan got confused and tried to stand up to go to the bathroom. Well, he doesn't stand on his own now so of course he fell over and ended up cutting his eye. They rushed him to the ER at the VA where they stitched him up and settled him down. They also put the catheter back in so that he doesn't have to worry about getting up to go to the bathroom for a while longer.

He's been a little disoriented about where he is and why he's there but I think it's really helped to have Tessha close by. Kristi and Haini and family have also been there to visit him. I think it's so important to keep family with him as much as possible and I'm already dreading coming home on Sunday night. It's just not enough time to be with him. But, I plan to go every weekend while he's there. Eventually, he'll come home with us and we'll apply for all the help we can get for him here.

Well, I'm going to go to bed soon. Tomorrow will be a big day with Tessha's dr. appointment in the morning, getting ready to go and then heading down to Salt Lake. I hope to be there before too late so I have some time with him. Goodnight Dan!
I love you!


  1. I hope you have a great weekend with Dan.

    Yikes!! Poor Dan. I hope the cut on his head wasn't too bad from the fall.

  2. I'm so excited to go see him. Cut and all!!
    Thank you! Love you all@!! Wouldn't it be fun if he could come with me to Karly's baptism?
