Monday September 10th is D-day for Gai and it's off to the Gold Coast Private Hospital. It now seens that she is not going to the Rehab Ward,
but to Ward 1 and the first week will now comprise of tests and scans. This means days of fasting as the procedures are all at different times.
So you can imagine by the end of the week she is fed up and wants to come home. Still the results are good in confirming that she has no bad
Finally the move is on to the Rehab Ward. Seems the room she is in is the one they use for long term patiens and has the best view, over looking
the Commonwealth Games Athletics Village. The previous patient was in there for three months, so let's hope this is not a sign. We discover that
we can also get wine with dinner now so that cheers her up no end. Seems all the old chooks like their wine of a night time as this is one of
their daily discussion points.
After four days in the ward she is no longer using a walker to assist her in getting around and the new medication that she is taking is having
a positive effect on her. They are very pleased with her and at her first review she is the success story of the week. On the Staurday the 22nd
September she is allowed out for a few hours on day release, so I take her up to see Michael's new house and we drive back down the Coast, stopping
in Paradise Point for some morning tea, before continuing heading back home via the scenic route.
At 4:30pm it's back to the hospital to be checked in by 5:00pm so that she can have her medication on the normal times and be settled back in
for dinner time - and wine time. More rehab daily and now counting down the days to the 28th when she will be allowed home.
