Ahhh, and I suppose the hospital has some plan to discharge Chris next week on the 17th…  to where, we have no idea.  There are no in-network nursing homes in Austin that will accept Chris, and the family house is in Alabama even if Chris were ready for at-home care.

My mom found out about the discharge when another patient’s family asked her why Chris’s name was up on the discharge whiteboard.  Ha, nice way to let folks know?  I wonder:  if you erase Chris’s name from the whiteboard, does he get to stay?

A quick, heart-warming event:  we were in the room milling around last night, checking out the new wheelchair, etc.  I walked over to the side of the bed, Chris had his eyes closed, asleep.  I said, “Hey Chris”, and he opened his eyes and turned his head to look at me.  Dang, that made me smile.  Chris is really becoming more and more alert each day.

    HI. My husband Scott (BlueDogOK from TWT) sent me the link to your blog. I work for Easter Seals Central Texas, which is an organization that assists people with disabilities. We recently purchased 8 condos in south Austin which have been remodeled for accessibility and will be rented to people with disabilities (rent is 30% of the tenant’s income). I wasn’t sure if Chris would be needing housing upon his discharge but if you would like more information, please feel free to contact me.
