Charlie Update 4 Aug

I got to go down and visit Charlie yesterday! My family was going down and had a couple of extra seats, so Joy and I went. Let me first thank John for taking the three boys so I could go and actually enjoy the visit. He would have kept Joy too, but she was in tears at the prospect of not being able to go; she really misses Uncle Charlie. Charlie is doing great. He seems almost completely back to normal, only now he has a cast and a neck brace, and he gets a little tired. However, he was usually tired, so that isn't so unusual either. He is doing in-patient therapy every day except Sunday, and it sounds like they keep him pretty busy. When he was first admitted, one of the tests he did was to see if he could fry an egg and make coffee. As he doesn't drink coffee, it is my guess that he failed that one. The doctors told him that he would probably be released by the 14th of August, and we are all excited about that. Charlie is hoping to do really well in his therapy and get released even earlier. I think we could all handle that!

Man...I am so happy to hear that...I was wondering all day how he was doing, but I try not to disturb him during the day.

He and I text msg'd yesterday afternoon, and then it stopped...I figured you guys had gotten there! I'm sure he was so relieved. ;)

That is so good to hear! I'm really glad you were able to go down and visit him too.
I ended up buying blueberries yesterday at Costo: $6.99 for 2.75 pounds. It will tide me over until I can pick some with you!
