Another day of watching and waiting.
We continue to wait to hear about a transfer to an inpatient rehab facility—and it all seems dependent on the insurance authorization.
And today…nothing. No word. And pretty much nothing happening for Jennifer in this hospital now. Only vital signs and continuing respiratory therapy.
She did have the 10 staples removed from the 3 inch laceration in the back of her head—which occurred UNDER her helmet. Difficult to understand how that happened. Seems like severe shearing forces as the helmet hit the pavement. So many things we probably won’t ever understand.
The morning started off pretty rough. Jennifer feeling despondent about life in general. Hearing details about what is going on in our teams in Africa—which were meant to encourage—just caused distress.
However, good FaceTime with our kids, Jennifer’s mom, and Ree’L & Jason buoyed her spirit.
And while no therapist came, Caleb took matters into his own hands. He got her behind the walker and they walked twice as far as the day before. She felt the paradox of liberation and general exhaustion. Then back to bed to recover and watch Ted Lasso while I ran some errands.
Please continue to pray we can get into the rehab facility tomorrow and get the next step going.
