This week Nate will be starting several months of intense physical therapy. He has a long road ahead of him. He is moving to a different floor in the hospital and will be working on basic functions such as sitting up on his own, lifting his arms, opening his hands, swallowing and speaking.
Daily visiting hours will be restricted until 4:30pm.
Nate seems to be in goods spirits and enjoys any kind of uplifting, funny cards and comments to the blog.
I'm sure Mark and Frankie will be learning a lot about how to help him in his recovery as well. The goal is to get him well enough to come home by the fall.
We are hopeful that he can resume treatments for his MS as soon as he is well enough (possibly chemotherapy).
As always, your thoughts and prayers are felt and appreciated.
