Gotten a few e-mails from friends who wanted to donate after the first fundraiser expired.
So this 2nd fundraiser has been created to accept additional funds that will be used towards extra medical costs and/or expenses to help keep the Flynns fed, afloat and able to focus on taking care of Mom during this time. The 2nd priority will be acquiring treats from Culver's for Mom. ;)
Thank you for all your prayers and support! Surgery went well and Mom & I are settled in her hospital room. The Dr. says she'll probably be in here till Thurs. Then get transferred into the Rehab Center upstairs depending how everything goes. (We'll keep you updated on our Post Op Adventures.)
If anyone would like to visit, feel free to give us a call and we'll let you know which room we're in. Medical Center of the Rockies doesn't have set visitor hours, which helps a ton with everyone's schedules. Mom's taking all her vitamins & stuff that you all helped us get! Thanks so much!
For those who would like to mail Mom a card or gift, please address it to the:
Please make any Checks / Money Orders payable to: George Flynn Memorial Fund 1151 Eagle Dr., #485 Loveland, CO 80537
Our new room has a wonderful view of the mountains. Lights at night and moon up high in the sky. Needless to say, we think its pretty cool.
Yesterday, Mom managed 3 cycles on the bicycle chair and 4 shallow steps up & down on the stairs in the gym.
This morning she managed 30 cycles on the bicycle chair. Also, got in and out of their "car".
Then this afternoon she walked all the way to the gym again; manged 40 cycles on the bicycle chair; went up & down 2 steps, (replicating the ones back home), with a walker for the first time. Finally, Mom walked all the way back to our room with the walker. As you can imagine today was a BIG day.
Tomorrow there will be a staff conference regarding my progress, (along with a few other patients), and to determine my tentative discharge date. So hopefully we'll know more by late tomorrow afternoon.
Good news: Today Mom got transferred from the Hospital to the Rehab Center. Funny thing is because of the Computer system, they have to discharge her from the hospital then admit her to the Rehab even though its the same place, (just upstairs & same company, etc.). Cool thing is that its was just one floor up and Mom didn't even have to leave her bed until they got her to her new room.
She's doing well and is resting from her long day today. Tomorrow starts the joys and agonies of 3 hours physical therapy! ....yay! (Interpersed though a rigorous 8am - 3pm schedule.) Haven't had the courage to make any night owl jokes yet. Don't think it'd go over that well in this crowd.
