Joe and Luke
Hitting the road
We have had a busy two weeks as the enclosed pictures will show. We continue to visit Vallejo for PT every Monday and have an acupuncture appointment during the week. Both seem to be helping Joe with more movements. He can serve himself some fruit with the help of a hand brace and we continue to venture out with our van. We helped Luke celebrate his first birthday in Danville and even managed to take a walk over to Peet's for some coffee.
The one problem Joe is having is severe spasms. While they are good for toning the muscles, they are interfering with his rehab and also send his blood pressure through the roof, so we will visit a neurologist to see if Joe is a candidate for a baclofen pump which is suppose to be more effective. If we proceed with the pump, it will mean a few days in the hospital but it might be well worth it. Enjoy our pictures.
