Sorry it’s been awhile since an update. Rory and Bryan went to Phoenix Friday to visit the Barrow Instittue, a spinal-cord injury rehabilitation clinic. It is close to Joel and Erika’s place, about 20 minutes, and we talked to the supervisor. He was a vey positive man. He had a lot of good things to say. Erika will visit Barrow on Monday to also take a tour. We also visited http://www.craighospital.com to look at a 28-minute video about the rehab facility. It’s under spinal cord video if you would like to watch it.
We saw Joel Friday night and he was in a lot of pain. He slept most of the day Friday. When we saw him Saturday morning he was propped up at an 30-degree angle. He had his glasses on and was having breakfast — waffles and cereal to be precise. He was also reading the paper and watching a little TV. He has a little physical therapy today and he was very excited about that. We talked to him a lot and he was in a little pain, but in good spirits. Phill and Rory went home today and Bryan will be in Flagstaff until Tuesday. Joel asked me if we were still on for the Bronco game Sunday. He also said he may feel like making some calls tomorrow. We’ll see.
