From the strip pit area

We have been through this area several times, and have not seen a single Great Blue Heron.  However, we always see two or three egrets.

***************
Roger continues to improve a little bit at a time...specially in the physical department.  He has now been up and down our basement stairs two or three times.  He can get in the tub and take a regular shower with no help from me.  He makes coffee.  He can go shopping with me to Walmart of grocery as long as I don't stay a long time.   These are baby steps, but steps I didn't think I would ever see again when this first happened.

He still has trouble with remembering and naming things.   And seems to have no short term memory. 

We go and drive through the strip pits two or three times a week.  It is a short drive and we have fun looking for wildlife.   He really, really enjoys it.  Not sure when he will ever feel like going for a longer drive.  We had an appt in Indianapolis yesterday and he was totally worn out last night.

I wanted to thank you again for your continued prayers.  Even though I don't respond personally, I do appreciate them.

I am happy that you are able to get out and see the strip pits again and the baby steps sound good to me and are proof that he is improving some.. prayers for both of you

Great to see back!

We are still praying for Roger, Rose... Glad he is making improvements... I'm sure it is hard to be patient, but taking baby steps is MUCH better, as you know, than going backwards... God Bless You both...

Hugs,
Betsy

This is wonderful news!! He IS improving! Do the doctors say he will return to normal?

Such a good news report that Roger is improving so well. Doing little chores in the house, short outings to stores and sightseeing, all point to a good recovery. Keep up the good work Roger! Take care of yourself too Rose.

No need to respond. I'm sure all your friends continue to pray for Roger, as I do. I often think about you and wonder how he is doing. Thank you for sharing that he is making progress. How is your daughter doing? Kids have a way of understanding and helping to make even the worst situations better.

Much Love and prayers
