On Monday, July 16 Thomas moved to the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison to begin inpatient rehab. He will likely be in Madison until late August, at which time he will move to Minneapolis, where he will start his outpatient rehab.
He program involves a range of interventions including physical, occupational, recreational therapy; as well as vocational rehab. He is adapting to a new hospital and personnel and was able, for the first time in 4-5 days, a pretty good night of sleep.
If today is representative, he will be busy from 8 AM to 3-4 PM. He is spending more time in a wheel chair and today cruised around several halls of the hospital.
It may be another week or two before he is ready for visitors.
If you want to send him a note, his mailing address is:
University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics
600 Highland Ave
Madison, WI 53792
From Thomas “Thanks again to everybody for your prayers, thoughts and concerns. At times its been really hard to stay positive, but knowing that you all are there makes me see the brighter side of life. Knowing that I could/should have died in the accident, its good to know that I have second shot at life.”
