UPDATE - 5-3-20 - Hoping everyone is staying safe and healthy. Regretfully we do not have much to report as Michael's Rehab Hospital is on Locked Down. We have not be able to be with Michael since 3/13/20. This is the first time in the last 6 years that we have not been with him everyday.
A very nice women who normally works as a nursing admin support person has been so kind to briefly Facetime with us during the week when she can. While we are extremely grateful for her doing this, it is also so sad for us, as we can often see the confusion on Michael's face as he is not comprehending why we are on the phone and not physically in front of him. The weekends are tough for us as we do not get the chance to see him.
We are hoping and praying that soon this nightmare will be over for all us. Please Stay Safe.
Regards Mom and Dad Bartolo
