My continued prayers for both you and Ron. Please don't stress yourself out about getting to see him in a rehab center. Stuff like that always works itself out. You'll be surprised at your determination to get there and I am sure many people would be willing to help you out.

Angelrose, I hope things continue to improve!
If he does have to go to a rehab 2 hrs away is there someone that can look after your house if you could go too, just to be near him? I feel it is important to his (and your's) well-being to be with him at this time. It would just wear you out going back and forth every day! You have to take care of yourself too or you will be the next patient!
I'm not sure where you could stay. Maybe the rehab facility could offer suggestions. I don't know about Ronald McDonald houses but maybe you could check into the possibility of staying there until your DH's condition improves enough to be transferred closer to home.
We welcome your daily updates!!! You and your DH are in our prayers!

Prayers and Hugs
Just adding some prayers and hugs for you and your DH. Can you bring some music that he enjoyed in or a tape of you talking? I know that when my DH father was in a coma we taped us talking and telling stories, we left the TV on and we brought in books on tape and tapes of songs he liked. The Drs said it helped to keep his mind stimulated. We also brought in cologne that he used etc..someone had said that the sense of smell is a big trigger to trigger the mind...who knows we did everything. Don't forget to take care of yourself too. Make sure you get rest so that you can be there for him when he comes home!!!!!!
Dhs Dad was a member of Rotary, they were wonderful. I suggest if you or DH are a member of any organization, church you give them a call. I am sure there are many who would be willing to drive you etc. In my experience people want to help but dont know what they can do.

Oh sweetie, I wish I could give you a big hug. Please come here as often as you want, lots of friends are praying for you and your DH.
Sending lots of prayers the neuro stimulator is successful in rousing your DH. Yes, your TLC and stimulation is the best medicine of all, keep doing what you're doing sweetie, holding his hand, rubbing his head, reading, playing music, and hey, perhaps you could reminisce about all your annual Disney trips you both so love and let him know how you are looking forward to planning the next.
Do take care of yourself, take things one day at a time, know that miracles do happen and we are all praying for one for your dear soul mate Ron. Godspeed ^i^ ^j^
I hope you don't mind, I've enclosed a prayer for you and Ron ~
Footprints in the Sand
One night I had a dream
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord,
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before us,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
There was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life
This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
You would walk with me all the way;
But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life,
There is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why in times when I
needed you the most, you should leave me.
The Lord replied,
"My precious, precious child.
I love you, and I would never, never
leave you during your times of trial and suffering.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."

Will continue to pray for you both. Please come here any time. I call this therapy sometimes myself,
I hope you keep reporting that he is improving some each day.
Does the hospital or rehab place have any volunteers? Do you have any family members or close friends who can perhaps give you a ride or something? Keep an eye on your home, etc. Don't be afraid to ask for help during this difficult time.
I also wish I was closer - hugs to you and stay strong. You are doing all you can and you are there for him. That's everything. I like bringing the music in idea.

Thank you for the daily updates. I know from personal experience how very important it is to talk and to be supported during trying times, it is a true source of relief for YOU. You need a release, so DO CRY, do talk to someone who will listen and most of all, get some sleep.
Know in your heart that you must release the power to someone who CAN do the real work. You just keep loving him and believing that everything will work out... and it will.
God bless you,

I just found this thread and read it all the way through. I am so very sorry you and your DH are going through this difficult time. I know it is 2 steps forward, then a step back for now, but it will get better.
Also wish we lived closer so we could help with the drive or offer a place to stay...
Will check in everyday - thank you so much for keeping us updated. We care very much and will hold you both ever so near in heart and prayer every moment.
