Today is 6 weeks...the last 3 weeks have been in this facility. When we first came to Texas Specialty, Rick would open his left eye partially, and move his right arm...that's all. Now he does so many things...he's leaps and bounds beyond where he was 3 weeks ago. This morning he had a pill bottle in his hand...just something different for him to feel...anyway it is about the size of a can. And before I know it he is raising it up to his lips and acting like he's trying to take a drink. Dr. Valencia was here and saw him do it. Other than that all he's done today is watch a western, and sleep. He's been pretty lazy, but he's had 2 pretty rough days of therapy, and I guess he deserves a rest.
I'm so thankful for being here...that may sound crazy, but I am...and I know in the end it will all be worth it. Thanks for all your prayers...God is good all the time.
p.s. My phone is still on the blink...hopefully Monday I'll have it fixed. Send me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
