He is looking forward to a visit with his brother, sister in law and niece over the Memorial Day weekend as well as several friends on Friday. Joe is slowly adjusting to the accommodations he will need over the coming year. I am so impressed with his grace and humor under these challenging times. He really is a champion and you are all his support team. Thank you so much. Sandy & Joe

Wednesday, May 20: Joe on the Go
Joe is a very busy person these days. They now have him chewing frozen 7-Up chips. Not beer yet but we are getting closer. We then move on to stretching and range of motion for 45 minutes. Then it is up in the chair and down to the PT gym for and hour or more of activities. He rode 30 minutes on his assisted bicycle and 15 minutes of arm exercises. We are usually back in the room by 2:30 or so and maybe we have a little time to read his emails, catch up with the Giro and read the paper. He is off the respiratory for 18 hours now and is talking most of the day.
