Monday Update at 5:35 pm CT
Chattanooga here we come!!!!!!! We received word today that Heather's insurance has approved inpatient rehab at Siskin Hospital in Chattanooga, TN. The plan is to leave first thing in the morning by ambulance and head to Chattanooga. It has been somewhat of an emotional day for Heather. She is so excited to be going home, but at the same time, she is going to miss her therapists and nurses here at Stallworth. Everyone involved in Heather's care have each been an extra special blessing to all of our family, but especially to Heather. So this has been a bitter-sweet day. She ended her last therapy session riding on the bike again. The ceiling tile is finished and we chose to hang it right above the stand machine because Heather spent a lot of time there. She was very fearful each time she was told she would be doing it for therapy. Though challenging, she conquered it for a 20 minute stand session!!!! We just thought it would be appropriate to place her tile there for others who will face the same challenge. Dr. Able came by and he had a card for Heather. She was taken back that her doctor would bring her a card, as you can see in the picture that we have posted. For those of you in our hometown, please, by all means come to Siskin and pay Heather a visit. She would be so happy to see you, even if you have never met her personally. Plan your visit for some time in the late afternoon because she will be kept busy in therapy from early morning through the afternoon. Our hearts are full because we feel we are one step closer to Heather's recovery. Thank you again and again for all of the prayers. We will continue to do daily updates at Siskin, and by all means, please continue to pray! May the Lord bless each of you!!
