10.26.11 – UPDATE

At Peter’s appointment with the rehab doctor yesterday, we learned that his bout with pneumonia had set him back some on gradually weaning him off the trach. We don’t know yet what it will look like, but the doctor wanted to wait a couple of months to ensure that he was fully recuperated and not at risk before attempting to do any aggressive rehab.

Peter continues to get stronger every day. We let him rest a lot because he is still recovering from being in the hospital, but there are times when he is very alert and doesn’t seem to have lost any of the progress we made with him cognitively over the last few months!

Here are some things you can pray for:

1. That Peter would stay healthy as we head into winter months, so that his rehab will not be delayed any further.

2. That we will know the avenues to take that will enable him to get off the trach as soon as he can safely do so.

3. That the timing of him entering rehab will coincide with the time in is healing that will be most conducive to him gaining a lot from rehab help.

4. That the Lord would provide us a wheel chair van. So far, every doctor’s appointment Peter has, he must be accompanied by Doug, who is the only one who can lift him into our suburban.

For the family,

Hope
