Nancy Ann James is in Room 1044, Grand Boulevard Health and Rehabilitation Center, 138 Sandestin Lane, Miramar Beach FL, 32550. 850-267-2887. CaringBridge is a place to share visits, photos, well wishes and invite friends. Set up by her friend, Caroling Geary. In addition, there is a calendar, called a "Planner" where co-authors can post visits or any time-related info. It is here: https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/nancyjames/planner.
If I invite you to be a co-author, it means you can post entries to the planning calendar. There are no other responsibilities. If invited, you can share in the journal and invite others to do so.
In 2015, Nancy was struck with Afib. Since then she has had other health issues. but seemed to be getting better with her medications, walking, and activities. On February 19, 2017 she fell, hitting her head, a serious injury. That night she had brain surgery for the subdural hematoma at Bay Medical in Panama City, FL. Making an unusually successful recovery from the operation, given her age and condition, but not able to care for herself, on Feb. 26 she moved to a rehabilitation center, HealthSouth in PC. There she made progress, always eating well, happy to receive visitors, starting to walk. However, she reached the end of services provided there, but still was tired and not able to do many things.
On March 15, she transferred to Grand Boulevard rehab. On April 12, she transferred to assisted living in the same building. I'm not sure any of her friends and relatives have a clear picture of her status because it changes so radically. One minute she is discussing a fine point about Buddhism from a book or remembering someone's last name. Another minute she cannot visualize the bike path where she walked every day for years. One minute she's walking to the door. Another minute she needs to lie down and rest in the middle of eating dinner because she's too tired. One minute she's smiling and normal. Another minute she's not.
This story is told by Caroling. I wish others would fill in, as I'm sure there is much more to be told.
