Another gap. We now have a hospital bed on the first floor and a lift chair. So naps can be had on either level. There is a portable roll-in shower we were able to get used. There is a used Hoyer lift on the way. I need to lift her off the toilet and up out of bed, and some of the transfers are looking like they are getting hard even with me helping. Speech is good except when she’s tired. A few swallowing problems with stems. Spinach is an issue for example. Spiral cut julienne veggies like carrots are bad. Looks like we will try to get a PEG put in this summer. Still spends nights upstairs. She has trouble finding a comfortable sleeping position. Showers are getting hard without help. Frequent bouts of incontinence have been a surprise. I think it will take a friend to do any travel going forward, so there is an extra set of hands. We both have our 2 Moderna shots. So things are cooking along.
