June 27th, 2011 Summer Begins!

Graduation is just a memory as of today.

We had beautiful weather for Rose's graduation
party Saturday. Warm but not hot, with a nice breeze.
Josh lasted until 10:00 PM before he headed to bed.

A good time was had by all!

The MAFOs are helping Josh with his walking. With the help of
his therapist, he climbed up and down 3 stairs and walked about
50 steps last Thursday.

This week: Pool Therapy!

The Boots Are Off!

Josh got his CAM boots off last night.
He is now in MAFOs and sneakers. (Molded ankle foot orthotics)
Back to the doctor in 4 weeks for further instructions.

Josh's right arm has really made progress in the last week.
He has a pretty full and strong range of motion. They will
continue to work on it OT.

Josh was cleared for pool therapy yesterday. Should be interesting!
We all know how much Josh likes the pool!

More pics this weekend after Rose's party.

Josh Returns to Upattinas for Rose's Graduation

It has been a busy 2 weeks now that Josh is home.
We are very happy to have him here! Josh's memories
from Bryn Mawr are starting to fade, but he still remembers
the special people that cared for him.

Josh is walking with an aide in day therapy, working
on his short term memory issues so common with TBI,
and continuing to see improved mobility in his right arm.
He is at his best in the early part of the morning
and afternoon and then begins to tire as it gets late .
Overall, his recovery has been described as remarkable
for only 6 months out. His long term memory, his intellect, and
his sense of humor are all very much intact, despite the fact that
he may not remember what he had for lunch.

Thank you all for your prayers and support. Josh will have his
cam boots off in 10 days and then the fun really starts!

Good to be home!

Everything is going well!
We are settling in and Josh's
new day therapists are great!

Does anyone have video of Upattinas'
2010 Graduation Ceremonies? (Josh graduating.)

It would be very helpful for us!

Our Prayers tonight are with Melanie Stewart, a close family
friend, who has an extensive body infection. Please include
her in your thoughts and prayers.
