Standing Chair

Andrea is getting a little stronger everyday. At TIRR this week, they put her in a special chair, then pumped it up to a standing position. It was tough work for her but she was so mentally charged and happy when it was all over. She can hardly wait to go back. Andrea continues to go to her speech therapist and MDA doctors. We have great hope that the speech therapist can help the nerves in her throat swallow properly again.
Thank you for your prayers as we remember you, too.

Glad you're experiencing TIRR.

Try to say hi to Chaplain Hazel Thomas one day while you're at TIRR. Or let me know when you'll be there and I'll ask her to come by. She is a good person.

Andrea and Aunt Kathy your love and strength amazes me every day. I love you and can't wait to see you soon. I am planning an H-town trip very soon. I am so blessed to have a family like you! I told Uncle Lynn that Josh wants to go huntin this year....should be interesting. He is fitting in well with the good old southern life style.
