11/1/12 from Mom

Shane said good bye to Hartford hospital today after spending thirty – two day there. He went by ambulance to Gaylord hospital in Wallingford, Connecticut to begin his rehabilitation. He was able to talk the ambulance driver into using his siren for a few minutes during the forty minute ride. Shane will now begin the next chapter, he was evaluated by the nurses, speech therapist and respiratory therapist. He will have to wait a few extra days before having the trach removed permanently because the rehab has their own course of action that he must go through before the trach is removed. The physiatrist will complete an exam tomorrow and then Shane should begin his program there. Shane was anxious to get started today but has to wait for all the evaluations from the different departments that he will have therapy with. The wheelchair that he will be using while there was in his room and he wanted to get in and start exploring the rehab, but was told that would probably start tomorrow. He will have to be taught how to transfer himself from a board. By the end of the night he was exhausted and fell asleep. Shane is ready and wants to get started with his therapy. We pray that he will stay strong and positive as he begins this part of the journey.
