Mom was moved into a rehabilitation facility on June 12, 2019. She was a little down about suffering from a stroke. Her mood has improved. She looks good and looks healthy. I have been visiting just about every day. It is tiring working at my job then driving into Edmonton to visit. I am happy that friends and relatives have been visiting. The television in her room does not work. I have been told they are slowly getting replaced. You cannot get a phone in the room. If you want to use a phone you have to go down the hall. I think that is a good idea, it gets you moving and motivated to do things like make a phone call.
The staff at the facility are great. Everyone is very nice and work hard to help you recover. Mom has therapy twice a day. They started her walking with a walker yesterday. Other times she is in a wheelchair and building up strength wheeling herself around her unit.
She complains about the hospital food. Personally I do not think it is all that bad. Her roommate seems to love it. It is designed for healthy eating, not for taste. I tried it, it is not bad. I offered to smuggle something in for her, so far she has declined. I told her that if she does not like it then consider it an incentive to get better and get back to her own home. Overall I think things are looking up.
