Well, I’m finally up after about 2.5 hours of nursing care. This includes a bowel program, shower, dressing and range of motion. Most quadriplegics with my level of injury (C5-C6) require some one to complete the task above. This person is either a family member or hired nurse (not covered by insurance). In my case we use a nurse because my wife has to care for my 2 boys, one being 4 and the other being 15 months.
That’s today’s peek into my quad life.
