May 3rd to 5th 2016
Its Alexx. Sorry I havent posted in a few days. A lot has been going on, we’ve been very busy planning.
Mom has made tremenous improvements over the past 3 days. Her personality is back and she is getting stronger every day!
We have decided that it is time to get back to New York so we can be with our family and friends. It will be a big boost to her morale and enhance the healing process. I found this company called MedAssis, which helps arrange international medical flights. Their medical director happens to be the Director of the Emergency Department at Shaare Zedek. I contacted them on Saturday and he came and spoke with us on Sunday morning. Everything was taken care of and we were wholly impressed with their efficiency. The plan is to fly home today!!!!! We will be on a business flight on El-Al with a paramedic who can monitor her and administer any medications if needed. Then we will head to Columbia NYP where she will be admitted to complete her hospital stay.
She is very excited to go home but also nervous and anxious. Shes been in the hospital for 37 days. She currently isnt walking, but thankfully looks stronger every day. The next phase of her journey to recovery will be intensive physical therapy and rehabilition. We are exploring acute rehab as an option after the hospital so she can gain her strength more quickly.
We can not begin to thank everyone for all of your love, support, prayers, and positive vibes. We felt them here. During those dark and scary 2 weeks it is what kept us going.
And now……some photos 🙂
Alexx took a final trip to the Kotel yesterday to say her final prayers and goodbye to Israel.
The first time I’ve put on real clothing in 37 days!
