He also spent 1 1/2 hr setting in his chair and was off the vent for about 1/2 hr twice today. His lungs sound good according to Dr. B so we are getting the upper hand on the pneumonia. He should also be able to start talking for short periods of time very soon. Love, Sandy & Joe

Friday, May 8: It is all in the tongue
OK! for all you jocks, ever heard of tongue exercises. Joe is doing tongue "repeats", kind of like those hill repeats he use to do on Tunnel Road. This will strengthen the back of his tongue so swallowing the beer will be easier--sets of 10x3. We will be glad to share these various exercises with you at another time.!!
