Wow, what a difference. Craig Hospital is a dream compared to Fujiko's previous placement. When Patty and I arrived this morning, she had just finished eating scrambled eggs and apple juice(!). She said they also offered her hash browns and ham (I think it was ham - some kind of breakfast meat) but she declined. What a surprise to go from half a teaspoon of water to actual food! She said she felt like she was in a dream. As Jamie said, Fujiko has her own room now. Everything is clean and calm and organized. Fujiko said there are two nurses for every eight patients, so she is getting quality care. There is a calendar posted in her room with a schedule for the week - lots of different therapies - physical, occupational, speech - a far cry from 30 minutes 3 times a week. She will be having lots of testing done for the first week or two so that they can determine the best course of recovery. I think she is in the best place possible for a return to normal life.
