Moms Schedule

This is the schedule/info posted in moms room :

8:00 - 10:00 Therapy/Nursing Cares
10:00 - 11:00 Down Time
11:00 - 1:00 Visitors for short periods
1:00 - 3:00 Therapy/Nursing Cares
3:00 - 5:00 Down Time
5:00 - 8:00 Visitors for short periods until sleep hour, limit stimulation
8:00 pm to 8:00 am - Sleep time

Down time = Decreased environmental stimulation (lights down, tv off, limited conversation, allow her to rest quietly)

Please keep number of visitors at one time limited to a minimum. For optimal brain healing a balance between stimulation and down time is required.

If you are wanting to come visit mom and say hi she would love to see you during the visiting hours. When her brother Russ came to see her today she lit up and it really did seem to make her happy. If you are available to come sit for a few hours and read a book or something while mom rests so she is not alone you could give one of us girls a call and we could tell you when we are needing some help or work around your schedule too. We all appreciate all of your love and support and prayers so much.


  1. You were doing so much better today Laura! It was so wonderful to see you so responsive. Your nurse, Trevor, looks like a Greek God, and when I said "Smile at this handsome guy Laura" you definitely did!

  2. Hi Family,
    I just wish so badly I could be there to hold your hand, ANY OF YOU! The fast on Sunday was very powerful to me. It was so special to be with the rest of my sibs, even if it was via speaker phone, as we prayed and ended the fast together.Laura you are in all our prayers and at the temple. It's wonderful to hear of your responses. Sounds like they are going to put you through the rigors. Hang in there Sister! Love to Mylan.Love Jana
