As of right now, we will be going to Cabin fever. leaving on the 16 of jan.  Hope the weather is ok.  Also, Tom's right hand is still not moving.   I think he is getting agitated that it is taking so long.   (sixe weeks from stroke) He told me this morning that he wants it back NOW.  I told him it will take time.  So, please keep him in your prayers.

Diana and Tom,

will be good to see you at Cabin Fever! I met Tom at Tim Hytrek's steam up a few years ago, it was nice to meet Mr. Eaton of SSS Fame :)

Tell Tom that I look forward to seeing you two, and I will keep him in my prayers

Good to hear you all made it home. 13.5 hours sounds about right. If I drive straight, no pit stops, save for 5minutes for picking up lunch, 30 minutes total for gas fill ups, It's about 13 to Rochester, New York....

Long drive, but good to see the arch when you enter the home stretch!

update on Tom

His little finger is starting to mo;ve on the right hand. when they put the electronic impulses to his arm, he can pick things up and move items. He is starting to grasp items with help. can't do it on his own yet, but this is a beginning. he starts out patient therapy next wednesday. the day therapy decided they could no longer help him. now we go to the next step. please keep him in your prayers. we see progress, but need to continue to see more.

just an update

please keep tom in your prayers. recovery is very slow. his attention span is next to nothing. hand is kinda shorta moving. he is flustered as he wants to use it NOW. things don't happen that fast.

just keep Tom in your prayers.

thanks

Diana,
Tom's been in my thoughts recently as a friend had a stroke here back in Early April and as her recovery progresses I've thought of Tom. Glad to hear things are doing well and getting better! I hope to be placing an order shortly.

Hi Tom & Diana; glad to hear about Tom's progress. Therapy, sure can work wonders! Being open for business again will, also, be good therapy for Tom! Jim Spanier
