He also got up into a wheel chair for 45 minutes and then had about 30 minutes of stretching. He is really getting spoiled. He had another visit from his cycling buddy, Dory Selinger who is a certified prosthetist and who gave Joe these really cool moon boots to keep his feet pliable and soft. The nurses and therapists work as a team and are getting to know Joe well. They are doing a great job and I am behind them checking every little thing. He is talking some and so they know exactly what he wants and needs (most of the time).

Tuesday, May 5 - The Gravel Voice
Joe had an active day today. They began testing his swallowing and couldn't decide if his "gravel voice" was from some water in his lungs or just his Philly accent. They will do an x-ray just to be sure the water is going down his throat. Then he can have some other nourishment.
