The Timeline

The doctor has extended Matt's rehab stay until July 3-ish. Since I've got my hands full taking care of Riley and Matt's business*, she wants him fairly self sufficient (able to bathe himself, get in and out of bed, etc.) before he comes home.

He'll gradually transition from a wheelchair to a walker to forearm crutches to—hopefully sooner than later—nothing! Which reminds me to ask...anybody out there got a spare front-rolling walker we could borrow? (Insurance will only pay for one of the above.)

*Warning: shameless promotion ahead. If you're looking for a creative gift idea, fun decoration, or a random way to blow a few bucks, how about buying a mobile? It'll support a good cause: paying for hospital bills and keeping frozen bean burritos on the table. ( Spread the word.)
