January 7th

It was another day of rest and recuperation for Mr. Bichler. He worked with his speech and physical therapists again. He was able to walk farther today than yesterday with the aid of a walker. He remains in good spirits and we appreciate all of the cards and letters he continues to receive.


  1. Sara,
    Thank you for the updates! Your Dad, Mom, you, and Trish are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. My family and I are so happy to hear you are progressing so well. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and you family Mr. B !!!! God speed with your continuing healing!!

    Blessings Always,

  4. Andy,

    It's great to hear you are up and walking. I knew you wouldn't let them keep you down for long. I keep remembering how you bounced back from your hip replacement faster than anyone thought possible so I know you will continue to progress in your recovery. Dawn, Russ, Dave, and I are praying for you and your family. Love to you all.

    P.S. Wednesday's team meeting just didn't feel right with out you. Hurry back.

  5. We are so happy to hear of the continued healing. We are all praying for you and the entire family.

  6. Hi Andy,
    We need you at our team meetings. We women need someone to "gang up on".

  7. We are so happy that you are progressing so well. I look forward to reading the updates each day. Our family is thinking of you. We keep Sarah updated.

  8. Andy, I hope you will do EXACTLY what your speech therapist wants you to do...don't want any reports through the "speech therapy network"! (We all stick together, you know..just kidding.
    Carol, Trish, Sara, you are in our thoughts and prayers too - hang in there! You have each other and lots of support from WJ school/community.

  14. Andy,
    We missed you at last night's Middle School skating party. Cara at Skate America said she always looks forward to our parties because she knows you will be there. She wanted you to know that no matter how bad her day had been you could show up and make her smile and she wishes you a speedy recovery. I know how she feels. I sure miss your antics around here (wow! I never thought I would say that). Tom and I keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Keep up the good fight.

    P.S. I'm off to watch the 7th and 8th grade girls play Grandview. The girls really miss you. Go Riders!

  15. Hey Mr. Bichler! I hope you continue to progress. I really miss coming to see you! You will always be in my thoughts and prayers!

    ♥ Get Well Soon ♥
