A lot of work is being done today interacting with insurance to determine the course of David's rehab for the near future. Changes are in store, and we are praying for insurance to be willing to provide for David to be able to get the best physical therapy he can in order to get back his full function. What we are hoping for is that once he is discharged from English Oaks that he will be able to return THERE on an outpatient basis (and there are lots of reasons for that - quality of care, continuity of care, advice of his current physical therapists, etc.). From what we understand at this point the chance of that is slim to none, but his therapists and he are making calls today to advocate for this. Please pray that whatever the outcome is it will be in David's best interest in terms of full recovery.
Today he sees his neurologist to talk about his future in terms of a number of things including possible seizure activity and whether or not (or when) he will be able to drive again. So our focus yet this week is entirely neurological (rehab and info), but next week it will shift as he sees his cardiologist for the first time since leaving Memorial Hospital and will be talking about further testing and heart surgery.
