Fran's discharge date has been moved to Monday, May 9th. Tomorrow we will take Fran to the house with an expert from the Rehab Unit to determine what equipment and techniques will be necessary.
All the staff at the Rehab Unit tell me that Fran has improved dramatically in the last few days in terms of the ease with which she can be moved from bed to wheelchair, etc. According to Rachel, Fran was able to move her left arm one time, and according to one of the therapists, she is beginning to have some slight response in her left leg. So optimism is appropriate.
Fran is definitely looking forward to coming home and to my cooking. I am equally looking forward to having her here and also to not spending quite so much time at the hospital.
