UPDATE ON GARY
JANUARY 10, 2017
Hello Friends,
We were happy to have Gary home for Christmas, but being home brought many
challenges.  Going from the VA hospital with 24/7 care, aggressive physical
therapy and long halls to navigate a walker through is a far cry from being
confined to four walls in a house, unable to walk, going from wheelchair to
walker to chair or bed, no place to really walk or exercise, living in
winter weather that might cause a disastrous fall - all of this has wisely
convinced Gary to be driven to the VA hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico,
where he will receive strenuous therapy and the ability to walk outdoors in
a warmer climate.  Add to that, the fact that portions of his house will be
renovated to meet Gary's new needs and that renovation would require him to
be even more confined.

Gary will be on the road, Wednesday, January 11 and return home on an
unknown date.  I will relay more contact information when Gary gets settled,
but he does have his cell phone nearby.
