J.P. tolerated his feeds well and was able to be discharged Wednesday afternoon.
It was a really interesting day because Karina was able to spend the day with J.P. in his hospital room.
I was very happy with the way she behaved in
the hospital, and the staff enjoyed being able to meet the dog they had heard so much about.
While Karina was in J.P.’s hospital room, he had occupational and physical therapy, and the therapists said it was among the best they’ve had with him.
It made me feel good about our decision to get a skilled companion dog for J.P.
Back at Canine Companions, the class was scheduled to go on a field trip to PetSmart and take the written final exam. It’s something else we’ll need to make up in the days ahead.
I was told early this morning that WESH-TV was going to send a photographer to get video of the class field trip, and the second part of the special report on Canine Companions will air at 5 p.m.
A watch party was held at Canine Companions for Monday’s piece, and everyone said they really enjoyed it.
The schedule for Thursday includes the test to be certified to take the dogs into public, as well as interviews for the video presentation that happens at the graduation ceremony. The dogs may also be getting groomed.
Paige and I really appreciate the prayers from everyone and the support from both the students and staff at Canine Companions — especially allowing us to bring Katrina to visit J.P. at the hospital. I think it gave her a good idea about what our daily life is like, and she got an A-plus for her performance today in my book.
Hopefully, we can put this whole hospitalization behind us now and begin concentrating on our graduation ceremony and the final few days to make Karina an official member of the Cousins’ family and member of Team J.P.
