Lasr January I went in for some admittedly serious heart surgery. We were told there was a 4% risk, but everything that could go wrong did. I ended up almosr in a coma for a month and then spent 81 days in ICU. I haxd kidney disease, a chast infection and am paralized from the waste down. It hasn not been easy !
The tips of four fingers and all my toes were amputated - it's VERY slow writing this! Then the miracle happened . My kidneys recovered, I could stop dialisys, and that part of our catatsrophe was over. That opened the door to a lot of things. I now have a good chance of getting homeaathough life won't be like it was. I'm daydreaming about sporty motorized wheelchairs. Above aall this opened the door to rehabilitation.
After ICU, there were 75 days in recovery and now I have been transferred to Parkwood Instsitute, one of the premier hospitals here dealinqg with brain injury, amputation, and spinal cord injury. I'll probably be here for a couplae of moncths or more for rhabilitation. Then I'm looking froward to getting home againf.
Outside my window is a large area of gardens, with paved pathways, and lots of alcoves so visitors
Cana sit with patients. Lots of trees too. More on the gardens to come.
Help. Has anyone figured out how to post from an ipad and import pictures from a cellphone?
