Sister Arrives ........l

Arrived here Tuesday to find Carey greatly improved. The staff refers to him as their "Star Pupil". No surprise to anyone who is familiar with his spirit and resolve. Today he walked from his room to Physical Therapy .......70 STEPS.....aided only with a belt and his therapist, Edward, closely behind. FACT. He has improved to the extent that the insurance company wanted him released yesterday. His doctor refused, but agreed to release him, Saturday, March 7th, almost a week ahead of schedule. We couldn't have had better news! I've never witnessed a more amazing and knowledgeable staff. However, their collective brilliance is their team efforts and joyful spirits. The foundation for recovery has been laid. The completion awaits him at home with his beloved wife, Janet, ........Sophie, Mia, Bella, Blackie, & Sam . The journey back has begun .......

    What great news! Carey, I cannot begin to put myself in your situation, but I know that it takes a real love for life to overcome such a difficult time. I am a true believer that cats have nine lives. It always amazes me with their powers of healing. Carey, this is what I see in you. Someone who can come out of a really dismal time and turn it into a positive experience. You have so many family and friends who care so deeply for you and all look forward to seeing you soon. So glad that things are improving so quickly. Your friend, Wick

    What wonderful news about your early release!!! We are looking so forward to your return home and know that your swift progress will continue here as well. Janet is so right, your spirit, resolve and determination are serving you well. Keep up the good fight. You are aware that Manchester Rd has not been the same since your absence, much too quiet. We are ready for you to get here and shake things up a bit, as only you can. All our prayers and best wishes for your full recovery, Rhonda and Jack
