Hello friends and family,
Wow the messages are really coming in. Thank you!!!
Today was another day of surprising progress. Jamie was transferred out of the Intensive Care Unit to California Pacific Medical Center ‘s rehab facility. Such good news. He is far more comfortable there with a private room and will finally be able to get some quality sleep.
In addition to being transferred, Jamie also showed his true grit today, giving the speech therapist hell. In trying to test his cognitive ability, the therapist gave him a print out of a badly drawn cartoon of a family obviously in great peril; kids reaching for a cookie jar about to fall off a ladder, Mother washing dishes whilst staring off into space as the sink overflows and oven burns. Jamie took one look at it, looked back at the therapist and snarked, “this family is messed up!” and then began to ask what the hell was going on with these people and why was Mom so checked out – boyfriend left her perhaps?
