Chico has been in a great mood all day. At 11:00 he transferred himself into the chair with the help of only one physical therapist!
At about 12:30 the surprise attack began.
"Hello, I'm Dr. Geisler from the rehab unit. I'm here to evaluate you before you move up today."
"I'm moving upstairs today?"
So we're packed and ready, resting up for the next exciting ordeal/event. Nurses, PCAs and other staff members stop by smiling, having heard the news.
People continue to remark on the amazing attitude Chico wears daily. It isn't possible to overestimate its healing benefits and the tremendous support he receives from the entire staff! We just reviewed a list of over 30 staff members who have worked with him on this floor (not including doctors and administrators). Chico can remember moments when each of these many people said or did just the right thing to help and encourage him when he most needed their support.
We are grateful.
