One of the senior nurses told me how much they enjoy working with Joe. He never complains and is very positive and cooperative. They "have bonded with him" she said. That gave me the courage to drive home and sleep in my own bed. I have been in San Jose for two weeks and it is great to be home. I will drive down each morning. Once again, Joe's spirit and determination have shown through. We will get through this and all your support and encouragement is so welcomed. Love Sandy & Joe

Monday, Joe's First Workout
Well the PT girls showed up today and Joe got his first workout which was comprised of sitting on the edge of the bed and not passing out and he passed the test. They were also able to get some muscle activity in his quads and he could wiggle his toes. His left arm works better than the right. All of this is a good indicator for future recovery. He will finally have his orbital surgery tomorrow to repair a small fracture.
