Helen was having her meds when I arrived. Up, washed and dressed. Helen looked in my direction when I went in. The nurse said that she had been ok that morning. The tray for the wheelchair has arrived and in situ.
Her feed regime has been changed to Jevity 50 & Osmolite. Hopefully this will help to stabilise her blood sugars.
Went upstairs for OT with Judi. Helen was learning to press the large red button to make a sound. Judi was also testing her reflexes by touching her face with a tissue and then moving it to her eyes. She occasionally closed her eyes before the tissue touched her eye lashes but was not consistent. She is getting better with closing her eyes to command but again not consistent.
She should be starting hydrotherapy soon, the risk assessment still has been done.
Judi has asked for a power pack for wheelchair but not sure it will be approved. Fund raising goal ?
Physio again today 2-3 with Sam. Helen has been on tilt table "standing" again. After all the excitement she was back to bed at 1615.
Put more money in her account.
The hairdresser is visiting tomorrow. I have asked for Helen's hair to be cut to one length all over. It will be so much easier for the nurses to deal with.
