dis b frum Altosinger (Janey):
Hi, folks—i thought i had sent out an update but i think i hit the wrong button. I have been rather allergic to the computer of late: not even reading much. It must be spring fever…
Anyhow, Scott continues to improve. He is able to get to a standing position from sitting on the edge of the bed (as long as the bed is high enough; Scott says 95% of life is math and plumbing, and this has to do with geometry!) with a minimum of help from Richard, the PT guy. Today he stood for over 3 minutes all at once, which is a huge step from where he was when he got to Good Samaritan. His weak leg is getting more even with the good leg, and his arms and hands are much stronger as well. He is rehearsing with his quartet—they come to him, since he can’t get to them so easily. It also occurred to us that if Dial-a-Ride could come get him for a doctor’s appointment, they could also get him to church, since he can sit in a wheelchair for extended periods of time now. So Sunday, he got to go to church, and it was Communion Sunday, as well! It was a wonderful thing!
I am doing all right, all things considered; it is spring, after all, and there are times my sinuses call me some pretty nasty names, or someone in an orchard in town is spraying for bugs and i get a migraine, but things are coming along. I think part of the allergy to the computer is just plain by-products of stress–now that the biggest scare is over, i guess i need some time to recuperate. In any case, please keep the prayers going—we need all the help we get! And thank you all for the prayers that have gone up so far—they made all the difference.
GOD bless you all!
Love you lots! —janey
