Once again, the report from Huntsville this morning is all good. Joe had a quiet night, and is a bit tired today after all of yesterday's activity, but he has been sitting up in his bed and doing all of his therapy quite well. All you Catholics out there will be particularly pleased to know that one of his newest accomplishments was making the Sign of the Cross this morning!
It turns out that it has not been necessary to move him into a "cardiac chair" as we mentioned a few days ago, because his high-tech "astronaut bed" allows for all of the benefits he could get from the chair. The gang is currently working to reconfigure his glasses in such a way that they will stay on his face, hopefully allowing him to see better -- sounds like a job for super engineer Grandpa Phil (or there's always duct tape). Paul and "Lisa-in-law" will be arriving from Indy this evening, and everyone is looking forward to that.
The family and staff are still in the planning stages for Joe's impending move to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta. Not yet sure when it's going to happen -- there is to be a meeting on Monday with caseworkers and a representative from Shepherd to, hopefully, make final decisions and arrangements. Lots of logistics and variables to consider. Stay tuned for more info on that.
As always, our love and thanks to all. CHARGE ON.
