It’s confirmed. Taylor will be leaving MGH on Monday at 8:30am for Denver on a mediplane. The doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, social workers, case workers, chaplains, and other staff at MGH have been great. It will be a big step for Taylor to leave MGH after being here for just over 5 weeks. (Wow, has it really been that long?)
Today, Taylor was visited by the occupational therapist, who worked on stretching out her arms, which she can keep very stiff from the injury. Taylor was also visited by two physical therapists who helped her sit on the side of the bed with her legs hanging over. She did not like this too much (I think it scared her), and she only tolerated it for a little while before they lay her down again. When they did, they put her down on her left side (usually she is on her back) and covered her with her fuzzy bathrobe from home. She settled down nicely and looked very comfortable. Other than this activity, Taylor slept for most of the day. Her sleeping is not deep; she will go in and out of sleep in 5 or 10 minute intervals with wakeful periods in between. I hope this does not mean that she won’t sleep tonight!
