But after a nice hot shower, I decided to take stock of some of the good things that we've discovered.
- BR tolerated the three hour drive to Houston quite well, and is willing to consider some leisure travel.
- He is able to rest comfortably on a regular bed with just the alternating pressure pad, a foam wedge, and lots of pillows. This opens us back up to air travel. We'll just need to rent a shower chair, and of course a ramp van for cities without ramp taxis.
- Caregiving duties seem a bit less burdensome in new environments. At home, anything that upsets the routine is viewed negatively. On the road, there is no routine. My problem solving instincts get a workout as we adapt to each situation.
We see the doctor next on Wednesday for another adjustment.
