It is approaching two weeks since Ray was transferred to the Gainesville VA hospital. There has been very little information provided by the care team for an update on the situation. So far he is still under evaluation in the psych ward and we are awaiting an official plan of care to decide what option is best. Ray has become more willing to cooperate with the therapists and appears to be engaging well with staff. It will be important for him to remain open to help and to keep a positive frame of mind. This attitude should also allow for a more immediate transfer to a rehab unit. For now we await word from the care team on what next step is determined.
Visitors are still welcome to help encourage Ray. Given where he is currently situated, there are still restrictions on visitation. Again he is in room 518 on 5 East of the new VA building and visiting hours are from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. He is currently only allowed two people to see him at one time and no items are permitted into the room when visiting. Hopefully there will be a change in Ray’s plan of care next week and he will be moved to rehab and enjoy more engaging therapies in addition to added freedom. Please continue to focus all your positive thoughts and prayers on Ray.
