In a telephone interview Tuesday afternoon, Jason Baker said that since wife Rene Rodriquez has been moved to Craig Hospital and Rehabilitation Center in Englewood she has improved emotionally and Jason and their three children have gotten to spend a lot of time with her.

“The hospital provides an apartment for you to live in right beside the hospital,” he shared. “So, we get to spend a lot of time with Rene. It is a two-bedroom apartment and the two girls sleep on a hide-a-bed while I and my son sleep in one of the bedrooms. Rene’s mom has her own room as well.”

U.S. News and Report ranks the top 50 hospitals in the United States in a variety of categories. One of those categories is rehabilitation, and Craig Hospital is ranked eighth in the entire nation in that category.

Rodriquez gets to spend a lot of time in a wheel chair and is doing well physically. Although, doctors have indicated almost from the beginning that, in all likelihood, she will never walk again. She has the use of her arms and hands and her legs are active, often having a lot of muscle spasms, but Rodriquez has no feeling in her lower extremities.

After the accident in which Rodriquez was ejected from the vehicle, she had major lacerations to her face, but her husband indicated her mental capacity was 100% and that her long- and short-term memory, other than during the accident itself, are very good.
