The night of the 3rd wasn’t an easy one for Rinpoche so in the morning in consultation with the doctor we cancelled the physio therapy sessions for the pool in the morning and the session with the physio in the afternoon. The doctor did some tests and thought Rinpoche had exhausted himself the day before in the physio sessions (it certainly was a full day … and partly maybe Rinpoche being very enthusiastic ). Rinpoche rested all day and thru the evening, being very quiet and doing prayers.
This morning (the 5th) the doctor cancelled the morning session in the pool and said the physio therapist would reevaluate Rinpoche this afternoon. Rinpoche this morning seemed much more rested.
The hospital is small well laid out and in a nice setting … quiet. We plan this afternoon to take Rinpoche outside in a wheelchair for some fresh air and have some tea. In the evenings Rinpoche watches a little of the world and local news.
The doctor just came and had a relaxed chat with us about Rinpoche’s condition … and thinks best for Rinpoche to take an extra week in the hospital to allow more time for Rinpoche to be walking with some independence.
