    Hi Mary-Anne

    I called goose today and had a nice talk, we had to cut it short because the nurse was coming in. He seemed to perk up when I heard her say something about a sponge bath.:)

    Goose seemed much more cheerful than he had before.
    I think people phoning him is doing him good.
    It looks as if he will do rehab at Spaulding in Boston.
    I understand he will be transported tomorrow,
    but I am not sure when.
    I will post contact information and
    when is good to phone when I have the information.

    Spaulding is a great rehab hospital....one of the best. You and Goose are in very good hands there.

    Mary-Anne,
    I hadn't checked this thread for a few days, so I'm very glad to hear that Arthur is doing so much better. Sounds as though the one he needs and wants the most, is there with him already. We're just sort of diversions. He's lucky to have you, and so are we, so I hope you can continue giving updates when you can.
    If you, or someone else can supply a mailing addy, I'd like to send a card (not much of a talker).
    Although not nearly as serious as Arthur's accident, last year (Jan., '09), I found myself stuck in the hospital for a couple of days with a broken arm. Surgery needed to insert a metal plate. They only kept me to keep an eye on me with the pain meds I was being fed. I wanted out of there.......badly. What kept me sane (besides the drugs :ahhh: ), was the calls and visits.
    I still keep a card one of my granddaughters made for me.

    Both of you are in our thoughts, and prayers.

    Dave

    Part of the basement is wet.
    It came in the hatch.
    This has happened before.

    I have not dealt with it yet.

    Thanks for asking.

    Goose is now transferred to Spaulding in Boston.

    The address is
    Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital
    125 Nashua Street
    Boston, MA 02114-1198

    He is in room 918 bed C
    C is for Corridor.
    The other bed is W for Window.

    His phone number is 617-573-7646,
    He may not get phone calls after 10 p.m.
    They are forwarded to a machine if too late.

    Visiting hours are Monday to Friday 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.
    and Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, 11 am to 8 pm
    Parking costs $5.
    The hospital is next to North Station,
    a short walk.

    He is still in pain.
    He is eating a little.
    His voice sounds normal.

    I don't believe that I am the only one he wants to see.
    I think phone calls (or visits if you are local)
    from multiple people does him good.

    I spoke to Goose today - he sounds good - in fact, he sounds like he needs to get online fast because his brain is working hard and he needs to be wired to the net and his communities!

    How is Goose?
    He has managed to have his first shower since the accident,
    which is a very good thing.

    How am I?

    I feel...normal.
    No lasting damage from my adventure.
    I am thinking about whether and how
    to prevent it from happening again.

    I am also really pleased by
    how supportive everyone has been.
