Well more progress, and only after a week and a day. First of all, I talked to the nurse about Joel’s fever and blood cultures. He no longer has a fever, and the blood cultures all came back negative. So that’s positive.
The PT people put Joel in a big wheelchair while he sat up for an hour. They were talking about putting him in a normal wheelchair. He’s still fighting a little mucus, but nothing terrible. Joel had a ton of visitors today, and he was very talkative with each of them. He also ate a big dinner.
I will be talking to Joel’s doctors tomorrow so we can see about starting the process of getting Joel transfered to a rehab facility. Wish me luck, these doctors have weird hours.
