December 20

Greg and I went with friends last night to see a play "The Christmas Carol". Bill came and hung out with Jeremy while we went out. Once the p.m. shift came on today everyone was saying - "boy were they having fun". They were hanging out in the front lobby. The one with Internet. I don't know exactly what they did but Jeremy was so tired by they time they got back to the room they said he fell asleep while getting ready for bed. Laughter is the best medicine and Jeremy and Bill do laugh a lot!

Jeremy is eating like a horse now! He gets back from meals and wants to know what there is to eat. He is so funny!!!!

We asked if we could play with the Wii today. Jeremy wanted to do something fun so we went through the games they have, to find something Jeremy could do. He wanted to do one that was a motorcycle race. We tried the one person race, and since Jeremy can really only use the one hand at this point it was fun! I pressed the "gas" and Jeremy did the turning. I kept telling him it was no wonder he was in the hospital, if he drove like that before! After that we tried several others, trying to find something he could do one handed. And since he still moves kind of slowly - well the point is to have fun - right?!? They have "Are you smarter than a 5th grader" also. We tried that one and Jeremy got a D. Jeremy is not smarter than a 5th grader, today. I am sure this is the first D he has ever received and will be working on bringing up that grade!

Jeremy is receiving many Christmas Cards and I want you to know every time he gets one he says "tell them Thank You" Thank you to all of you!!

Yesterday we started to show Jeremy pictures. Pictures of the trip he had taken the day before the accident. He remembered the name of the road. We went through the pictures of the ambulance, helicopter and then to the motorcycle. When we got to the motorcycle he asked if that was his motorcycle first of all and then he laughed. This morning we showed Jeremy the pictures that are posted on the blog - the ones of when he first had his accident. I told him how "sick" he was and how hard the people in Yakima worked to help him. Again Jeremy said, "did you tell them Thank You"? We told him that we did, many times but when he got better we would take him back there so he could tell them himself. He said yes he wanted to do that!

Thank you for your continued prayers.
