Bear was having a better day today. He is finding the new air bed much more comfortable and easier on his back. He had some company today (His Mom, Gramma and Uncle) and he finally got the chair. He had a chance to go outside before I got there, so I know he was happy about that.
Just before I left today, they put up some bars around his bed that will give him the ability to adjust himself a little better, and perhaps to strengthen the use of his arms again. The hospital's dietitian came by and asked him about the menu and he complained a bit about it which resulted in some changes on his menu. He was happy to get some gravy for his potato at supper!
Palliative Care came by earlier in the day and talked briefly to him. Someone will be coming to see us tomorrow for a sort of 'interview'. I think they may do a home assessment to see whether our house would be at all possible to set up for him to come home. I don't see it happening because we live in a two story townhouse which is on the smallish side. But if it's possible, then that would be great!
Bear's mom tells us his brother and sister-in-law are making their way out here later this week. I think it's important that he sees his family as much as possible. It took a while for them to come to realization that this is serious and that if they want to see him, the time is now. Miracles may still happen but if they don't, there's no need for regrets.
