Feb. 7

We had a wonderful weekend with Jeremy. We're really excited that Jeremy has been transferred to Elk's. We think that the next few weeks are going to be really exciting when it comes to his rehabilitation. He has come such a long way but in some ways this is kind of the beginning of the road.

It was great to see the physical therapist work with Jeremy Saturday afternoon. He was very good at explaining to Jer what he wanted him to do and why he was asking him to do it. I have never seen Jeremy stretch his hips as well as he did during that session.

It was great to be able to spend his birthday with him as well. He kept telling us how OLD he is now. I asked him what he was trying to say? I'm only six months younger than him--am I getting old too?! He just laughed.

Jeremy lit up when he saw his good friend, Andrea yesterday. She came to visit for a couple hours and it was so fun to have her there. Stephen and I got him a Kenex/Legos truck that Andrea and I helped him put together Saturday and finished today. It was very complex. Next time we'll try something a little easier, but Jeremy seemed to really like to have something to do with his hands in his free time.

Plans are coming together for the renovating that needs to be done to Greg and Debi's house so that Jeremy can eventually come home. Hopefully we'll have some more progress on that this week.

One thing that happened today that shows how great of an attitude Jeremy has... Stephen asked him if he wanted some of his smoothie and Jeremy said "no", but then he added "Thanks for offering!" How many times have I forgotten to tell someone that this past week?

It's so great to see Jeremy so positive and polite about everything. Today he looked at Debi and thanked her for everything that she is doing for him. Almost brought tears to our eyes. He's such a great guy and his attitude is such an inspiration to us all. And he pointed out something very true, Greg and Debi are truly sacrificing a lot every day to make sure that Jeremy has the best care that he can get.

Thank you for your continued prayers for Jeremy and the rest of the family. I know that we all, especially Jeremy, Greg and Debi, can feel the power of your prayers.
