Nothing much happened today. I did talk to the pool guy though and I have decided to not have a ramp going down into the pool. After talking with the specially adapted housing guy, we discussed how easy it is to go down the ramp, but how hard it is to come back up it. After thinking about it all evening, I agree. I think a lift would be much better. It would slowly lower him into the pool and then lift him back out when he's done swimming. It would give him much more freedom and independence than someone having to help him out of the pool every time he went in. Granted, he won't ever be alone in it, but still...
I did find out too, that we won't be closing on the house for at least three weeks now. I had just talked to the docs today about releasing Kevin in a month thinking we were closing next week, but it will be roughly 6-8 weeks now instead. I want him to come to the house on the weekends and a couple of days through the week before fully having him discharge from the hospital. I don't want him just thrown into a new situation as it can be traumatic for someone like him.
So that's about it for today. Kevin was in a pretty good mood most of the day. I had a dentist appt and Breezy stayed with him while I went. I also picked a friend up at the airport and took her to her parents' home as they live here near the hospital. They didn't know she was coming and it was so fun to see their faces! Such nice people, too.
And now I am signing off. Kevin actually took a sleeping aid tonight - something we haven't done in many months (but he was just so restless) and he is finally snoring so I want to go down and pack some more stuff.
First 2 from the Nov kit!
