MONDAY UPDATE 5/16/11

So I plan to go home one week from today. That is what is scheduled.

This morning in PT I walked with a walker from this building to a car, opened the car door and got in the car: which means I can do that with my car. The hardest thing was getting the building's doors open, which is going to be the same problem I will have at home. Our doors at home are automatic, but I would have to walk 2 times as far to use them (I usually use the side doors to my building.) So that is a minor problem to deal with.

Everyone has been so kind and helpful to me in getting home and making it a success. God willing, it WILL happen. My apartment is currently a mine field but that will have to be cleared so I can progress from room to room and do the things I need to do to live my life and do my work.

My church where I work has already rented a wheel chair to get me from my car to the organ to play services. So folks, it's going to happen! Keep me in your prayers please.

I'm sorry you're having to go through all of this Richard. Here's hoping great things will happen this last week of rehab and that you're home soon.
Somebody, somewhere is praying just for you.

Richard, it sounds like things are really looking up. I'm so glad you have those wonderful rehab people who care for you. One step at a time, my friend.

Richard, prayers are being answered. I'm planning to sing "Believe On Me" Sunday, both services. I hope to get a dvd for you. You sound so upbeat, and we are all praying for a smooth and complete recovery.
