A Quick Update

Was your Thanksgiving great?

I spent the day with Scottie, and it was quite nice. His conversational skills are greatly improving. The big news however, is he has been moved from the hospital to a rehab facility. There have been several complications regarding his move over the last few weeks.

About a month ago, we thought we had him placed in a perfect facility, but several things happened to make the move not go through at the time. As it turns out, it may have been for the best. He is much more receptive to therapy at this point, and the place he is now in is only a few blocks from his old apartment. We moved him Friday. There was a mix up with the hospital and they were going to move him alone earlier in the week. We were able to push it back to Friday, so he would have family there during the move. He seems very, very happy to be in this new place, and it will be much easier for his kids to come and see him now.

I'm getting ready to drive back up there in a few minutes, but I thought I'd let you know.

So yeah, I have things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Yes, I am thankful for all of you as well.

This is such awesome news! Please give Scottie a big hug for all of those wo may not know him, but were hoping for his recovery, none the less. It gives one hope.

I'm guessing your Thanksgiving was a good one. ;)

I am really pleased that Scottie has improved so much and that you were able to get his rehab facility sorted out. Now you just need an instant shuttle to get back and forth from PL to Houston!

Hugs

Seventh Sister -

Thanks! I took that one in RAW format, and it has been sitting on my hard drive, undeveloped since June. I finally worked on photos for a while Friday, and I was delighted to find that one.

The full size is here.

To all of you -

Thank you again for all of the love and concern.

He is so much better it is amazing. He has a lot of work in front of him, but he is going to do it, I'm sure of it.
