I got to the hospital around 10am. I would have been here sooner, but I had stopped to help a poor lady change a flat on her car. It never ceases to amaze me how many people will pass by a stranded person and never stop to help. It's sad, really.
But anyway - Garren met with the speech therapist first. She spent some time evaluating him. Next we met the occupational therapist. She helped us sit Garren up in bed. That is the most upright Garren has been in 20 days. They wanted to see how his blood pressure would respond. Garren did fine. Her job is to help Garren relearn how to do things he needs to do to take care of himself.
Then we met the school teacher. Her job is to coordinate with Garren's school, and do everything we can to help him keep up with his schooling, and with the reentry process when Garren is ready to return to school.
After lunch we met with the physical therapist. Her job is to help get Garren mobile. She will be working with him as he begins to sit up, stand up, and walk. Today we got Garren up out of bed and into a chair so he could sit up for a while.
The goal is to get Garren's muscles moving. The hope is that through the process of these different forms of therapy, the brain will be stimulated, and start waking up even more.
We've also met with several other medical staff throughout the day. It's been a long day of learning a ton of new things.
We continue to lift Garren up to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, praying for complete healing and restoration.
