Well.... go to a rehabilitation clinic in a wheelchair, with a bladder and feeding tube, being transferred with a lift, almost sleeping all day, and then return six weeks later sitting upright in a normal wheelchair, being brought in a normal car, making transfers almost alone, eating and peeing normally. All the nurses of Kalorama were impressed by the improvement Frank made over the last six weeks. And so are we! you've done a hell of a job bro!!! we're very proud of you.
Now time has come to wait for a single room on the rehab dept. of Kalorama (he is in a double room right now), where Frank has a rehab indication for another three month. And after that another time of waiting will come to make a transfer to the Kalorama dependance "de Veste" in our neighborhood.
For now, anyone who wants to visit Frank, can find him in Kalorama, dept. Kastanjedal. His room is next to the living room (don't know the number), halfway on the leftside of the hallway.
He can be reached on his cellphone, 06-48853891.
Phonecalls or live questions for the nursing staff (for whatever questions you have) are preferred between 10.00 AM and 17.00 PM. visitors can come all day.
that's it for now folks.
ps Frank is blogging like if his life is at steak and he checks very often whether there are comments. The easiest way to leave a comment is to click the profile "anoniem" than posting isn't so diffucult. I know Frank would appreciate it greatly if you react to his blogging.
Thousend times thanks!
To all the followers of the blog, to anyone who has been supportive of Frank or us in the last months and especially after his untimely death we want to say thanks from the bottom of our hearts. In the week after his passing we received so much warmth, stories, care and love, hardly describable. To us it was a very precious and valuable week and it was so good to have Frank at home where so many of his friends could visit him. And all the help, stories and info shared in that week led to a beautiful goodbye ceremony on a beautiful sunny autumn day. For those of you who could not attend, or those of you who wish to reread the funeral speeches, we publice them here (in dutch and english) with some pictures in grateful memory of, and tributed to Frank.We will miss him dearly, thanks for being with him and with us, one way or another,
On behalf of my family and his closest friends, Esther
