Tuesday, January 27
Well besides all of the snow we couldn't have asked for a better start to the week. Once again Mr. Bichler excelled in his cognitive tests, believe it or not they are very difficult try naming the months backwards Dec. - Jan. However the biggest news of the day once again comes from his physical therapist. I'll tell you what this Amber really knows how to work him. Guess it's payback for all the wind sprints he made other people do for the last 30 years. She had Mr. B walking stairs again however today it was 5 flights up and down. He was pretty tired afterwards but did so well that she decided it was time for him to give up his wheel chair to someone who needs it more than him. We can't say that Mr. B was to thrilled about this, non the less he headed to the elevators and then walked to his room for a little afternoon nap. So far this week has been nothing but progress and we hope to keep reporting positive news here from Dodd Hall. Mr. Bichler wanted to thank everyone for all the cards and letters they really help to break up the monotony of the evenings. The nurses are all amazed that one patient receives so many letters day after day.
