The last six days have all seemed to roll together. Today was the first day of rehab. Will has come a long way in the last few days. I can hardly believe that it was just last Saturday he was rushed to the ER, intubated, had a central line, an art line, 3 IVs, and going through hypothermic treatment. Six days ago I had no idea if he would remember who I was, or if he would be able to walk again, or if he would even live. Now he is walking on his own, talking, and even starting to play the guitar. He is still struggling with his short term memory and having double vision. He has an eye patch to help and every now and then he takes it off an says "Why do I have this on."
He pushes himself very hard in therapy and has an amazing attitude about everything. He would be in a completely different mind set if he didn't still have his sense of humor. He keeps me laughing, that's for sure.
Every day he will see a physical therapist, an occupational therapist, a speech therapist, and a neuro therapist. They will work with him on everything from tying his shoes to regaining his memory. It will still be a long road to full recovery, but I am grateful I still have him to walk that road with me. Thank you so much for all of your continuous thoughts and prayers. I tend to keep my friends and family busy praying for us.
A special thank you to my sister Soni and my niece Andrea. They have truly been lifesavers! She not only saved me when Lincoln was in the hospital but made the 13 hour drive again to be here. I know that it has put Will at ease knowing she was here to take care of me. There are several people who have been lifesavers, I will have to make a list later. I just wanted to let them know how much I love them and appreciate all they do.
