My husband Hugh, Night #50, Critically Injured, Now in Rehab

What a great day. Hugh had absolutely no tummy problems, feeling MUCH better, except for the normal pains from broken bones. His right knee was less swollen and not to concerning.

Nothing happened unusual today, more therapy, more speech/cognitive therapy, and in his wheelchair most the day! My nightly routine is to get him to bed myself, help dress him in his night clothes, brush his teeth (however, I will teach this tomorrow to him so he can start practicing!), and tucking him in. I am not "settled" until I get him comfortable in bed for the night. After that, he calls the nurses for repositioning him through the night. The morning comes early and he starts all over again.

Dear Hugh,
I am just unbelievably happy about you feeling better (on the inside!). I know this was wearing on you so much. Let's keep our fingers crossed it keeps up this way! This roller coaster has to stop at some point for you. I wish you were home with me, these nights are horrible, even though it was a good say, being alone is something I do not want... please hurry and get better, I want you home, I need you...and I love you forever darling..........
