The week started with very good news, finally Mr. G was ready to be transferreed to the rehabilitation clinic on Thursday ! I was really relieved that he could go a step further. I checked all clothes for warm and cold weather because we have the coldest April since 30 years !
Our shrinked Scrabble club (now we are three), played at Myriam's and could even sit outside on her terrace because the sun was shining and it was warm. This time we scrabbled but babbled too and it was for us all a very nice afternoon.
I got the last instructions for Mr. G's transfer and went (hopefully) for the last time to bring him his travel bag with all the clothes. As it was quite heavy I took the IKEA carrier put the bag on it and pulled the thing to the reception where they put a label on it and will bring it in his ward.
When I came home I had TV life on my balcony ! My new neighbor got her furniture ! It was quickly done they had a very modern equipment, not like our move where they used an equipment from 14/18 ! I have not seen her that day, but she is a nice lady and I am glad that we have her as neighbor.
Poor Mr. G was so excited that he would be moved that he called me 9 times to ask all kind of things he had already asked me before, but as I had learned to never discuss and agree to everything I let him speak. I am always very worried after these conversations because I wonder how will they get him back to normal ? He has always been like a volcano, exploses with a lot of noise but then is friendly like a lam ! Of course people are not used to the Italian temper but get it quickly and after a while he becomes the darling of everybody. He had alwas been like that in a hospital and I am used to calm down the nurses and explain with humor referring to the famous American actors of Italian origin, that he will change completely once he is settled down.
And as I had foreseen I got a call from the coordinator informing me that Mr. G is very agitated and unable to give the informtion which they needed. I managed to establish a very nice contact and we talked a bit together about his work and other things.
In the evening Mr. G seemed to be quite happy and had even noticed that the nurse had put nicely his clothes in the wardrobe and that his room was very nice. He had already met other patients and told me that he has a whole program to follow from the next day on.
I had the impression that huge elephant who was sitting on my chest, finally got up and went to another person ! If all goes well there is light at the end of the tunnel.
My happiness would be complete if with the next shuttle they would send all variations of the Coronavirus to Mars, instead of sending humans, at least that would be more useful !
