The doctors and nurses at Craig have put Joel on bed rest for the last couple of days. It looks like his escape from it may be on the horizon.
According to hospital staff, Joel may be taken off of bed rest Monday, but — and cross your fingers it doesn’t happen — Joel may have to continue bed rest until Wednesday.
Because of the complications from an old wound and his subsequent bed rest, Joel’s departure from Craig is expected to be pushed back by another week, instead of of his saying sayonara to ole’ Craig this week.
