Joe Frank Medical & Recovery Fund – Update 78

I am numb. Four days ago, Joe was medically sound and ready for physical rehab. As I type this, he is in the ER waiting for a room in the ICU. All due to negligence on the part of the rehab facility’s nurses (and the doctor who was following him there.) I cannot even get the words out. I am blaming myself for not calling 911 to get him out of there on Saturday afternoon. When I just knew something really was off.

Joe Frank Medical & Recovery Fund – Update 76

12/2/2017

We have a facility for Joe’s discharge to take place next week. The facility is not ideal, but with the extra care Joe requires, this is the only one within 20 miles of where we live. The extra care will be very short term. At that point, he can transfer to a facility solely focused on rehab. And as soon as possible, he will come home for daily physical therapy and home health.

Joe Frank Medical & Recovery Fund – Update 71

I walked into Joe’s room about 7:00p last Friday and my knees buckled. He was in great distress. His bed was surrounded by the Cedars crisis team who themselves seemed to be in crisis. The room was loud and chaotic. With just three hours of sleep since Thursday morning, I summoned every sliver of strength I had and made my way to him. I took his hand in one of mine, stroked his face with the other, and offered as much reassurance as I could muster despite how shocked I was internally.

Joe Frank Medical & Recovery Fund – Update 70

11/12/2017

I had written Part Two of the last update, ready to post when Joe called, urging me to come as soon as possible. Unfortunately, my concerns about how he looked were validated. Shortly after I arrived, he was admitted to the ICU. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you. I will provide more information as soon as I can. Right now, I just cannot talk with anyone. Thanks for your understanding.
