Saturday September 3, 2011

Despite the flooding, Rose made it to Brattleboro, VT and Darling
is on the way home. Her apartment and studio are on a hill on the
way out of town. So, no damage there.

I spent the week in therapy with Josh. Taggart joined us also on
Thursday. I trained to walk side by side with Josh. It is taxing,
on me, but satisfying.

The insurance company cut Josh back from 3 days a week to 2 as
"Speech is not medically necessary." Josh's communication skills
are excellent. However, speech therapy is more than that. It includes
memory exercise and cognition. So we will pick up the slack at home.

It won't be long before Josh can walk back into the ICU at Paoli
to meet his old friends again. We are so looking forward to that!

We see that many of you are still following Josh's blog. Thanks!
