What a great day!

Today Mike met Saturday's goal of walking 150 feet! He is also using his hand with much, much more control. His muscles and his brain are working hard. We are so impressed with the physical and occupational therapists. They are so very kind and patient. I did get Mike moved to a private room today... It feels like the Hilton! It is nice to have privacy and I know it will help with sleeping tonight. Mike was trying to take care of his room mate... He was giving him motivational talks, etc. Mike has had lots of visitors and we also wanted to make sure his roomie had the privacy he deserved. Thank you to all of you who have visited and sent cards and flowers. It means so much to both of us that so many are thinking of us. Mike is determined to make everyone proud... He is working his tail off and says this is the HARDEST work he has ever done... I love him so much.


  1. Mike and Nancy,
    We are so glad to hear of the progress that Mike is making. Keep up the good work! We are heading to Indiana on Friday and would like to stop by and visit for a few minutes. We will probably be in Muncie around 7 pm. Let us know if that will work for you and also where the hospital is, etc.
    Love, Patty and Everett

  2. Mike's private room is GLORIOUS.....spacious....dark blue wall behind the bed....cinnamon rolls on the tray (I tried to take one and he just would NOT let me have it). What a trooper....we should all be so brave and determined. Keep up the GREAT work, Miguel....and Nancy, keep up the great strenghth and spirit. Love you all!
