Scott also started therapy on the Lokomat, which is robot-assisted walking therapy. It is such a neat (and I am sure very expensive) piece of equipment.
Scott moved to acute rehab last Saturday and has started intensive rehab (at least 3 hours per day). They are working him hard and he is "enjoying" that. He is doing everything he can to get better.
Scott has been able to get a pass on the weekend to leave the hospital for a few hours. This has been so wonderful and has brightened all of our spirits. The first time he got to leave the hospital we went over to Megan and Barry's and just hung out. Scott requested for Barry to smoke some meat and that's what we did. It was nice to feel like a normal family and just be together.
The plan is for Scott to be discharged from acute rehab a week from tomorrow. He will then enter the rehab day program. He will still spent a good portion of the day at the hospital for all of his therapies, but he will be able to come home and stay with us after he is done with therapies. We are all ready for this next step. We had to find a new apartment that is wheelchair accessible and will be moving into that next week. We are going to hire two of our favorite nurses from the hospital to help with the kids and Scott's care.
