Out of the blue we got the message that Jennie is now sufficiently well in terms of not needing so much nursing, to be transferred to a Neurological Rehabilitation Unit. This is a totally different environment from the Hospital where the emphasis is now on getting her body working again. Nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians and speech and language therapists work as part of a team with the aim of getting patients as independent as possible. Discharge is planned to coincide with the time that the patient no longer needs to be in hospital. So is it too soon to look forward to having Jennie home by Christmas?

Keep watching this space!
