In the last week, GG has been moved out of ICU and into a regular hospital room, and now is doing rehabilitation. This is pretty strenuous stuff, they want to keep her very active, so she can bounce back as soon as she can. She wants to remain non-dependent upon the family or other health care workers.
Her progress has been very good since the last surgery and her mental capacity has improved greatly. She remembered my name, knew I was married to Kate and recognized Jack, too. We all hope this keeps up and her improvement continues so she can be back.
Kate's father's father, Granddad, had surgery this week as well. His surgery was supposed to be a triple bypass, but it turns out that it was only a double bypass. The surgery was a success and Charlie is on the mend. We will probably go see him at the hospital this weekend or next, so he can see Jack, too.
This week has been very good as far as great grandparents are concerned. And we are thankful!
