Coleman's Journey 2/20

Coleman's done with Speech Therapy now.  Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy still remain.  Another milestone in the rear view mirror.

Another milestone today - upon arriving for therapy this morning, the wheelchair was left in the car.  The therapists liked seeing that.

Coleman's Journey 2/14

Yesterday was the start of Coleman's 2nd week of out-patient rehab.  He's getting around our small townhouse better with each day.  Yesterday, he mentioned how he's trying to rely less on his cane when moving around our townhouse.

Best wishes for healing go out to Denise and Larry.

Coleman's Journey 2/7

One step forward ... Coleman was able to wiggle his toes in his left foot today.  Still making those neural pathways.

Coleman's Journey 2/5

Well, it looks more official now.  Tomorrow will be the last day that Coleman will be in an in-patient status since last Halloween - 3 months and 1 week - he's progressing from in-patient status to out-patient status.  Tonight will be his last.  He'll continue to receive physical, occupational, and speech therapy at Mercy in Coon Rapids, MN on an out-patient basis.  His first appointments at Mercy will be Thursday afternoon.  He'll stay with Deb and I during the week and then on weekends, he'll stay with Sophia, his fiancĂ©.    

It's yet one more step in the right direction.  Truly a journey of many steps.
