May 6

After Jeremy's doctor visit on Tuesday he sent a order or request to Boise Health and Rehab to "work out" that arm 3 or 4 times a day. They have asked the CNA's to do it once, the restorative nurse to do it once and we will do it also. When I got to Jeremy late this afternoon we went into the gym and he was going to work for 15 minutes on his legs. It turned out to be over an hour. Someone was on the machine he usually uses so we put him on a different one. I can't think of the name of it right now. Then we took him over to the mat for about an hour of stretching, rolling and torture (at least Jeremy thought it was torture). We rolled him over on his stomach and slid his head over the end of the mat. Tried to get him to hold himself up with his arms! He did it after he stopped yelling. He was not a happy camper at first. He was yelling so loud they closed the door to physical therapy. Jeremy was the only patient in the room at the time. The yelling is good news by the way. He still speaks so quiet most of the time you cant hear him. Someone took pictures of him during this time so I will try to get them and post them. In the end I know he enjoyed all the attention and could tell that people really care about him getting better.

Thank you for your continued prayers.

  1. Hi Jeremy,
    There is a famous saying, "No Pain, No Gain" Keep up the good work and keep yelling. We are proud of you and love you.
