Good to hear your news, Marge. He's made tremendous progress so far and I guess you have to trust him to know what he can and can't do. Though I can understand your concern. Hope you're doing OK too.

I won't say "I told him so" but the P.T. was there today for the first time and told him to take short walks..

He is doing very well. I will go over there tomorrow and stay with him for awhile. He is so anxious to get back to "normal". I keep telling him it will take time. He wants to get to Stanfors U. and get this over with. I can't blame him but he has to get stronger first.

Oh Marge! I don't know how I missed this - I can't even put into words what I am feeling right now. Wow - one day I may tell you my thoughts on this whole ordeal. I know you feel extremely blessed and a weight has been lifted. I know he has a lot more ahead of him. He is not alone - we will always be here to lift him up. We will always be here to lift you up. I wish I could give you a hug my friend.

Fantastic, Marge. Tremendous news. John is certainly a fighter but he needs to channel his fighting spirit a little more gently. That is, do what his PT person recommends. Little baby steps will get him to his goal in better shape than huge leaps and bounds.

Much love.

We can't thank you enough for all the updates Marge for you and your family mean a great deal to all of us. I'm so thrilled he's doing so well. I can only imagine how anxious he is to get back to his full self. Thoughts and prayers continue as always. ((((Huge Hugs))))

Marge,
you're both excited over his progress..He wants to jump in with both feet, and you being him mom want him to be more cautious. He may have to learn the hard way to take it easy and follow directions, but I'm hoping he listens to mom and the therapist and takes it a day at a time. It is so exciting to read about the progress all of you have made. Marge, the time you've spent giving us updates is priceless and I love you for it. I'll be here as will all you friends here at DC..We all just love you to pieces I think we all feel as if we are truly a part of you family.

hugs and many prayers still coming your way.

I'm delighted with the latest progress report, Marge, but that doesn't mean the prayers will stop.

I'll ask for John to have just a wee bit of patience in his recovery...

I know you're elated!!!!
