It’s one of those days where I have so much information to share. I found it is best to put this in list-form. Really, that’s more for me than you so I don’t forget anything or go on rambling about a boring topic. You all know how I can be…
On top of this, Sue left on business for today and tomorrow and Kari (my daughter) is having a great time at Rehobeth Beach, DE. I’m flying solo for a while. The real bummer is that I see no way to fit in the porn and cigars with such a tight schedule. Looks like it will be a boxer day only!
Here’s my list:
- Basement Project. The construction team leaders (plumber, electrician, framer), including the president of Michael & Son Services, visited with Bryan Tiplady and the County Inspector in our home yesterday morning. Demolition work will begin next Saturday. The following Monday the operation will be in full swing and is expected to wrap-up within two weeks.
- Pool Table. I really need to find a home for the pool table. If not, can anyone help me have it disposed? It seems like such a waste if I need to go this route, but it simply cannot stay. This is a regulation-sized table with leather pockets. Racks, balls, and cues included. Felt in great condition.
- We should begin getting test results as they arrive at Dr. Rodriguez’s office from Reston Hospital today. I’ll keep everyone posted in the “Updates and Information” section on the Home page.
- IBRF will be visiting next Wednesday. For those new to the site, IBRF (International Brain Research Foundation) oversees Ryan’s recovery. We put Ryan’s treatment under their protocol.
- Electro brain stimulation will begin today. The delay in getting Ryan’s 3-D brain model — that was built from thousands of MRI images during that fateful trip to Johns Hopkins — means this will not be precise. Still, we can estimate where to place the electrodes on his skull based on CT scans and static MRI images.
- It will be a therapy-packed day, starting with the HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment) chamber. From there, I’ll need to double-up on therapies to get them in. For example, I’ll have him using the ActivCycle while he is getting his infrared helmet treatment and music therapy.
- Dr. Hinkle, Ryan’s eye doctor, is visiting this morning to continue monitoring the condition of Ryan’s eyes. My wife, Sue, claims he’s the nicest man in the world. I agree.
