Rehab rules and regulations etc...

Ok just another update on the rules of visiting Abi.
In rehab they tend to wear out their patients with Physical therapy, Occupational therapy and Speech therapy.
Abi will have 3 hours per day of therapy. She will get a schedule every morning of what her day will look like which will be nice and bring a sort of routine into her crazy little world. 

Visiting hours are from 4pm to 8pm. With Saturdays and Sundays a bit more flexible. Especially on Sundays.  She can also leave her room and take a ride in a wheel chair and even go outside.

It is encouraged that you call before coming up on any given day to make sure she is not in therapy when you get here. Even though it is during visiting hours she may be in a therapy session.

Lastly we are back to 2 visitors at a time. Her new room is much smaller than before.
and you still need to wash upon entering and wash upon leaving the room, due to the nature of her infection being extremely contagious.

Abi was so much more active and even had some attitude today! Wide awake and talking!!!! But she is extremely exhausted now! she barely has any energy to stay awake or to talk.  So remember like her dad said "a good visit is a short visit"!   She wears out extremely fast.

Thank you all again for your love and support! It means the world to all of us.
