A New Day

Much better day today. It's amazing what a good nights sleep and a visit from his sister Jennifer and her husband Brian can do. They drove up last night, spent several hours with John and then headed home. Talk about a "turn-around trip". PT and the nurse got John up again today and he was able to shuffle about four yards and then back to bed. Getting him up and down is the worst and he was sweating by the time he was back in bed. Think he felt it was one big step toward recovery. Also a nice long chat with his friend Bill in Arizona really helped. Thanks Bill! One of the doctor's came in just as we were getting ready to head back to the house and he said that the flap was looking much better, but added that it wasn't bad to begin with. This really helped as well. Tomorrow is another day. We have faith that each day will be better than the last.
