Just wanted to update you on Jim. He is resting right now and he does this alot. This past week he had some memories which will help a great deal with getting the necessary forms to the VA. Hopefully it will be soon and we will make some progress. I faxed info again today. We were also able to sit down and go over the enormous hospital bill and radiology bills. This was a little difficult, but we got it handled.
I found out where his bike is located and talked to the repair shop. Not sure of the prognosis at this point, it is 50/50?? It should be at the shop for at least a month and a half if it is repairable.
I have Jim an appointment this Wednesday that is covered and next Wednesday that is also covered. I should be getting a phone call back today regarding him some occupational therapy and Jim may need assistance with those appointments. I am not sure at this point.
I had terrible pain on Thursday and Friday of last week with kidney stones and was very close to going to the hospital myself. If it was not for Jim and my child sleeping I would have went in the middle of the night....PAINFUL and very tireing.Thank you jday, I think it helped.
Things are going well at this point. We may need to reevaluate our role here in the next two weeks. If anyone is willing to assist with anything please email me privately and I will let you know what we need, or what you might offer and how we can get it to Jim. So far Jim's pain level has decreased a bit. He says it takes him an hour just to brush his teeth, but he is doing better than that. It probably seems like things take a lot longer for him. I asked him about doing an update on the dailypaul and he said he would like to do that, but again he tires very easily. We will try to get to it later today.
I think he was happy with the progress we made today, the busiest day yet without aggravation and relatively lower pain. The focus was much better today than it has been. His vision is still very blurred and he closes his eyes a lot. It is much better to have softer voices and only one person talking at a time. I have loaned him a pair of sunglasses as he could not find any at his home (?)
Thank you from me and my family for all the assistance for Jim. We appreciate it and I know Jim does as well. He says hello.
Please continue to pray for Jim's recovery, he has come a long way, but as the doctor's have stated he has a long way to go.
