Day +28, +29, +30: New York, New York!

May 5th to 7th: Days +28 +29 and +30

Hey everyone. I’m back in New York!!!!

It was a long flight (12 hours!) and an ever longer journey!

Everything went smoothly. The ambulance rides, the flights.  We had a wonderful paramedic that flew with us and thankfully I didn’t need much at the flight.

And now I am at Columbia NYP! What a difference.  Everyone speaks English. It’s so clean. The nurses check on me every hour and when I press the call bell somebody comes within 5 minutes.  I felt safe enough to spend the night alone and sent Alexx home.

I’ve met with the the nutritionist who is great.  They already advanced my diet to what they call “transitional”-meaning low bacterial, bland, low fiber foods.  I’ve tolerated small amounts of chicken, canned fruit, cereals, steamed veggies.   They put me on a medication to help by gut motility.  It seems to be working. My albumin is 3.7!

Ive also been seen by Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy.  I have a long way to go. They are recommending Acute Rehabitilion which we still start looking at on Monday.

Overall I feel more optimistic and safe. I’m very blessed to be back in New York.  It’s been nice to start getting visitors and I’m glad that my family is starting to get some rest.  Alexx was in bed til almost 1pm today!

My last white board update in Israel!
