Gretchen here again…pasting a note I sent to the online forum Kate and I belong to…here’s a quick update written Sunday night.
hi all, just got home from a visit with Kate. She’s doing well with her rehab so far. Hasn’t started pt yet due to it getting pre-empted by a few things (blood transfusion, VAC change…). Tomorrow is another VAC change, so hopefully Tuesday she’ll have the PT consult. Her color is much better, and she is able to get herself to the bathroom and back without her walker! She has gotten to see Emily and Jacob both this weekend (one kid each day), but will be unable to see Isaac until she is home, or at least in a less medically intensive facility. (which may happen if she’s done with the VAC dressings before she’s met the PT goals).
She does have cell reception, but no wifi; that being said, Willem got her some kind of pay as you go internet device for her laptop, so she’ll have some connectivity, at least!
Tuesday is another consult with the wound specialist, so hopefully there will be a clearer timeline after that…can’t wait to find out!! (i’m sure she can’t either!)
