Colorado Bound

Craig Hospital in Denver has been chosen (99% certainty) as Taylor’s rehabilitation facility. It was our number one choice because of the closer proximity to LA, younger age of patients, and overall reputation and quality. Yesterday, we met with Donna, a representative from Craig, who came all the way out to Boston to examine Taylor and her care team to make sure they were a good fit. Today, we learned that Taylor was accepted into the program and that a bed will be available on Monday. Insurance and transportation are the only issues pending, but neither Donna nor the case worker here at MGH anticipate any problems.

Taylor had a very lazy day today. Her heart rate was up slightly more than yesterday, but other than that, she had a storm-free day. She has also turned into a little wiggle worm and can be quite restless in bed. The doctors attribute this restlessness to her becoming more “awake.” This is another good sign that she is ready for a rehabilitation facility.

  6. Kit and John – That is wonderful news! Please let me know if there is anything we can do here on the Denver end. I know that Craig Hospital provides lodging for you guys for the first 30 days at no charge but if you need a place to stay let us know. Craig Hospital is about an hour drive from our house. Can’t wait to see Taylor!
