Marge Payne Shares Harrison's Progress With Us

A Note From Marge Payne

Sent August 13, 2008

Hi all, Well, it has been nearly three weeks now that Harrison has been home from the Nursing Home. I am pleased to say that he is making progress and getting around some. He has therapy three times a week - and they are pleased with his progress. This past week our home health care put him on a monitor what they call "Tell a Health". This is a machine that takes all his vital signs once a day and transmits them to a nurse who in return sends a report to home health care. If there seems to be any problems , they call us right away and also calls our doctor. Our doctor gets a read out once a week. With this machine they are hoping to stop the readmissions into the hospital so often. Our home health care only has ten of these machine and we are fortunate that Harrison is a candidate for one of them. He is still on oxygen and it looks like he will be for a while. We continually pray that he will get well enough to get out and about once again.. We thank all for the prayers and concerns that have come our way.

LOL - Marge
