Joe working with Ramona and Andrew. Talk about attention. He was in his glory
Two of Team Joe fans, Jan and Marion congratulating Joe on his progress. I think he has too many women in his life right now. HA!
Joe had a swallowing test today to make sure food will go into the stomach and not the lungs. A month ago, he failed this test and had to do various tongue exercises. Today he passed with flying colors, all levels of food from thick to thin. So after 2 1/2 months of no food, he had his first meal of green beans, mashed potatoes and some mystery ground meat with mushrooms all washed down with cranberry -apple juice. What a thrill. We also learned it is a possibility that Joe could go to a skilled nursing facility to help him regain his strength as an intermediate step to coming home. That has taken a huge load off my shoulders. Nothing is decided yet but at least I have some options and time. He is expecting several visitors on Sunday and we hope to bring Shasta over for their first visit since the accident. It will be a busy weekend. Love you all, Sandy & Joe
