Hi All - We’ve turned a new year that hopefully brings new hope to all.
Since Spaulding hospital is still in lockdown to visitors, we haven’t been able to visit with Chris since December 2nd. We are able to FaceTime with him 3 days each week. We talk about happenings in the world (we’ve explained Covid), anything that happens with the family, sports etc. We pass on everyone’s messages and sometimes reminisce. It’s hard as he’s sometimes asleep for the call and there’s a staff member in the room. But we get what we can out of the call. We showed him all the Christmas decorations - we decorated the house the same as he would want. We’re taken him on a car ride and try to keep him within our everyday doings as much as possible. These lockdowns are tough on everyone.
Chris has been stable. He’s changed insurance companies with his employer as of January 1st and now is on Medicare disability as well. We were able to work with the insurance company and his employer to ensure that the change did not interrupt his care. He is going to remain at Spaulding Cape Cod as the Cambridge facility is still caring for Covid patients for the time being.
Hope this year provides peace throughout our country and the end of this deadly virus.
Stay safe and God Bless ........
Chris, Elaine and Zack
