Subject: [Nfbmo] Very good news about Robin!

Hello everyone,

I thought I would give a good update about Robin Sweitzer.

She had her feeding tube removed yesterday, and she is eating real food
again!  Hurray!

She was moved from the hospital to a skilled nursing facility last evening.

She ate eggs, sausage and hash browns for breakfast, for lunch she is having
cream of potato soup, chicken salad, minus the bread, mashed potatoes, apple
sauce and vanilla pudding.  Yum yum!

She is having physical and occupational therapy in the morning, and
occupational and speech therapy in the afternoon.

This morning she was able to take a sit down shower, and she did most of the
shower herself!  Yea Robin!

This afternoon they are going to work on her getting dressed and then her
memory and speech.

They are going to do more physical activities in the morning when she is

They are also making sure she gets plenty of rest.  They want her to try and
watch television or read each day.  She's very tired, and they said sleep
and food are the best two things for her.  However, exercising her body and
mind are also very important.

Her phone number into her room is 417-269-9318.

Although you can understand her very well, sometimes you can not quite tell
what she is talking about.

The doctor has said instead of just pretending to understand her, get her to
take a breath and use her words.  Sometimes it annoys her, but the doctor
said the more people pretend to understand what she is saying the longer it
will take robin to recover.

At this time he thinks she will make a full recovery.  He said it is very
good for her to have phone calls, and talk to lots of different people.
However, if you can keep your calls to a couple of minutes that is best.

Thanks for all the prayers, she knows who she is, where she is and who
everyone is.  Keep the prayers coming.
