Settle down

We finally settled down at American Village with very warm welcome from everybody. Ada will get a good care from the nurses and nurse aids who come in every 2 hour to check on her. I did made an executive decision to take her collar brace off while she is in bed. She looks much happier and turn her head and follows me around the room. There was a starring contest this morning between Ada and I while I was trying to put the brace back on her left arm, and I gave up. The staffs all learn how to take care of her. This is a new experience for everyone. Ada was blessed to be here, otherwise, who know where they will send her.
They don't have cable TV in the room but I can pay $15 to get it, so forget about Internet. LOL
We start decorate the room, trying to make it feel like home. I still sleep on the couch and continue to pile up stuff on the other bed. Abby starts stringing the cranes and hang them on the wall. Ada can see them. More cranes are flying our way from Thailand and Australia.
I promise that I will take care of myself, spend more times with the boys and taking a break from the nursing home. There is still a long road to recovery for Ada and the family.
Fundraising will be put together soon. Please let me know if you will be available to help.
Hugs

Dear Ponsawan,
I've been reading the blog and it sounds like Ada is on the long road to recovery finally. When you do your fundraising, please post about it and I will be happy to send pendants for auction or sale or whatever else I can do. Thank you so much for your nice comment on PCD!
