Dear Family and Friends,
Joe continues to make progress as he is put through all the therapies every day. There is evidence that his short-term memory is improving as both Ginny and Dad Leahy asked him the same question within 10 minutes of each other, and Joe gave the same response. Both Gin and Dad, unaware of each other's identical question, queried him about physical therapy, and Joe replied "they asked me to act like a robot and then they moved my parts."
Ginny also shared that she made up a prayer spontaneously about Joe's recovery, Keith, Stephen, all the family and friends everywhere, the soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, etc, and when she finished Joe asked Ginny who had written that prayer. When she informed him that she had just made it up, he said, "that was very good!"
Ginny also reported meeting some other people with loved ones at Shepherd and finding that their faith was a "great common denominator."
Today at 3:00 Ginny and Mom and Dad will be meeting with a team of people overseeing Joe's care to answer questions and provide information about Joe's treatment plan. I will post after we know more.
I know Ginny is looking forward to seeing Keith, Stephen and her brother Ed this Saturday as both boys are on spring break next week.
As always, please keep praying for Joe and everyone who has been touched by this "event"--at a loss for words to describe...
Love and Blessings,
