He must be able to negotiate the stairs then (with help).

We'll soon be in a position to validate that opinion - I'm more than a bit curious myself

Probably there is a way to not require him to have access to all 3 floors!

Cal & Chris,
They may have to figure out how to make him able to live on one floor.

I know you're a pro ramp builder for your infirm friends, so you know a 1:12 ramp is pretty much impossible to get to another floor. However the entrance may well need a shorter ramp..

The laundry area, with hot and cold water, drain, and 220v power or a gas line gives you connections for a stove, sink with drain.... so a kitchen. Maybe the existing laundry area can supply some of that in case the kitchen is on a non- grade level. or they can convert the living or dining room to a bedroom (duh!), mostly depending on where the baths are....um the BIG baths. Even then it might require a wider door that opens outward and some handrails. Sounds like where they live life is pretty informal so that gives options!

Tsunami alert - assuming Dave's arrival back to Casa Dlugos meets Ruth's anticipated date of this coming Tuesday, I think that provided sufficient hydration, we can expect multiple unloadings of 5 months of backed-up forum posting splooge.

I wager once he see's home again and settles in, recovery will advance 10 fold. And where it may seem the best right now could their home have been a one floor ranch style (we're all getting on in years) A good challenge with a few stairs and something to achieve in familiar surroundings, could be the best way for him to advance forward some. Blessings!

More to come as the news breaks.

DaveCan - I'd like to share your optimism

Cal - yuppers - home as of 11:30 this morning. Last word from Ruth was he's finding it hard to adjust to the reality of the changes he authorized during the first several weeks of his absence, and which took hundreds of hours of labour to attain.

Just talked to the man himself. I had to tug him away from his bacon but he was pretty good about it.
His voice is just like the old Dave so there's no doubt now, it's just a matter of working on the mobility. I hear that he is even negotiating stairs, a few at a time mind you but so far so good.
Cheers Dave, welcome home. Get well really soon because you wouldn't believe how long the honey-do list is when you decide to vacation in your local hospital like that.
Double cheers buddy.
