We have learned today that Sunday is a slow quiet day for rehabilitation. No therapies.
Lenny still did not sleep well last night. The longest stretch of sleep we got was an hour. He seems to sleep for an hour then wakes up and it takes about 30 minutes to get him settled enough again to go back to sleep. We did that all night long.
Wake up call is really early here, breakfast is at 6:45-7:45am so they come in at 6:30 and wake us up. We had breakfast and then proceeded to start the day. We got Lenny up and in the wheelchair, he was going to be getting a shower today and we decided he needed to shave before the shower so I ran to Target. We also decided that we would shave Lenny's head. They shaved off a large strip for his facial surgery and the rest of it is getting long and is full of yuck and he keeps messing with it, so off it was going. Then he was off to get a shower which he has gotten very good at. His range of motion is coming back as far as his ability to move around.
They weighed him after the shower, 243, he was 285 the day of the accident. His muscle is just deteriorating. His arms and legs are so small which is weird for Lenny. He legs have always been rock solid. So, therapy will be rebuilding those muscles that his body has eaten over these past few weeks. Plus, who knows how much that goatee weighed LOL.
The doctor put him on a sleeping pill today so hopefully tonight we will be full of good dreams and no wake ups.
Yiyi is on her way back and should be here soon. She hasn't seen Lenny since he barely opened his eyes and said "juice" so I know she will be all smiles when she sees how far he has came.
Tomorrow will be full of therapy again, so here's to hoping for great progress tomorrow!
Love and miss you all, Nancy
