August 19, 2016

Brother Doe came home one month ago today. He has come a long way in one month. He will have many years of therapy and will probably never be able to walk. But he is on his way to being able to do some things for himself. Cholena rigged up something that he can hold in his hand and type on the computer and with practice he will be able to use a phone independently. He has little movement but Cholena has him on a program to use and develop his thumb and index finger on his right hand. His left hand has no movement. Cholena is of the opinion it would be better for him to let his left hand atrophy and become a hook. With his forearm and hand as a hook, he will be able to manipulate his body in many ways. Sampson is still working hard on helping Brother Doe keep his muscles flexible. The Internet is still down today at the mission office. That really limits us on what we can get done.
