Coleman's Journey 12/29

Presently, Coleman is unable to use his left hand or arm.  He has a left visual field cut.  He can only walk with assistance.  Are these permanent conditions?  We don't know yet.  They say that because he is so young, that he has a chance of making a full recovery.  We're told that he'll see the greatest improvement in the first 6 months and then again in the second 6 months.  Presently, he's in the rehab program at Courage Kenny (CK) down at Abbott Northwestern (ANW) hospital.  This facility is designed for those that need to see a doctor daily.  He'll be there for about 2 more weeks.  The working assumption is that he'll then need to continue rehab at CK (Golden Valley).  This GV facility is for those that don't need to see a doctor daily.  It's estimated that he'll be at the GV facility for 2 to 6 weeks.  In both facilities, he'll be getting 3 to 5 hours of rehab daily, 5 to 6 days per week.      

His feeding tube was supposed to come out today, but now that is up in the air.  Deb will be making some inquiries in to the reason for the delay.

  1. I keep checking to see how things are going. I know it will be a long process and I keep praying for a complete recovery for him. Love you all.
