Subject: [Nfbmo] An update about Robin.

Hi, everyone,

Robin was moved from Cox South to select a rehab hospital on Thursday
afternoon last week. Her mother and brother drove in from Kentucky to
see her this past weekend, and spent Thursday evening, Friday,
Saturday, and Sunday morning visiting with her.

Robin sits in a chair every morning for about two hours. They unhooked
her respirator so she was breathing on her own through her trake
yesterday from 11 AM to 9 PM. They put her back on the respirator so
she could rest comfortably last night. This morning around 5 they
unhooked her respirator and she has been unhooked all day, including a
two hour nap.

They got her up this morning to stand, and with their support she was
able to stand for about a minute. She is able to hold her nurse/TV
remote, wave it around, and push the buttons.

She is trying to talk and communicate, but we are not having very much
success in understanding what it is that she wants.

She is able to hold and squeeze your hand and she likes it when you
apply lotion to her hands, arms, feet, and legs. They have a list of
four goals that they are working on with her.

Per four goals are; get off the respirator, learn how to swallow so
she can eat and drink, build up her endurance, stamina, and strength,
and finally get off the trake.

All of your thoughts and prayers have been passed on to Robin and she,
Larry, and myself all appreciate them.

Your continued thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated.

I will continue to update you as I have news.
