My husband Hugh, Night #58, Critically Injured, Now in Rehab

Hugh's speech therapy is cut down from 5 days to 3 days, and he is drastically improving they said. They have him up standing several times through the day.

His doctor appointment (orthopedic doctor) is on Tuesday and we are hoping they give Hugh's physical therapist the go ahead for 100% weight bearing on his right leg, to prepare him for walking. His physical therapist also anticipates a goal to have him home in 2 weeks!

We have decided to keep Hugh at the current rehab he is in. We love them. They are doing Hugh wonders. I only thought "acute" rehab would be to Hugh's benefit, but they are pretty much doing "acute" rehab with him there. Plus, Hugh (and I) LOVE the rehab at the place he is in. In fact he wants to go back there for out patient therapy, if insurance approves it.

Dear Hugh..
I LOVE YOU! We are NOW seeing the brighter light at the end of this tunnel! We talked about this today. So, keep that light shining darling! We will get there.
