GOOD NEWS!  

Dianne has been released by both her Outpatient Therapists. While she will continue follow-up visits with her Primary Care Physicians and the recommended specialists, today marks a HUGE step in a miraculous journey that began nearly six months ago (8-26-15).

Once again, THANK YOU for your prayers and all the kindness you have shown.  In that way you have all participated in her recovery.  Please continue to pray for her and others affected by challenges, and we will certainly keep each of you in our prayers.

Sorry that I haven't updated this page in awhile.  That's because keeping up with the much improved Dianne is a challenge.  She is now going to Out-Patient Therapy, and can often be spotted CARRYING the Cane that she has progressed to.

Due to her schedule, please call before visiting. Thank you again for all your prayers, but don't stop now.  Pray that healthy habits will keep Dianne on the road to complete recovery!

Dianne is continuing to respond well to in-home therapy, and getting out for rides while the weather is co-operating.  Photo below taken today in Chagrin Falls.

She has been released by her Nurse.  She is continuing Physical Therapy.  All is going in the right direction, and she continues to "walk off" from her Walker (slow down Dianne!). Due to her schedule, please call before visiting. If you plan to send her a card, please use our Home Address.  If you need our address, please call me at 330-425-8776.  Your prayers are working.  Thank you and please keep them coming.

Here she is enjoying a Rootbeer Float at one of our old favorite stops, Grandpa's Cheese Barn on Route 250 near Ashland University.  She is continuing Physical Therapy and visits by her Nurse are decreasing.  All is going in the right direction, and she sometimes "walks off" from her Walker (slow down Dianne!).  Due to her schedule, please call before visiting.

It just occurred to me that even though Dianne home and undergoing in-home visits by nurses and therapists, it might be a good idea for me to continue updating this page.  She is coming along well, gone for a couple of rides, and we visited Patterson Farms today.  She remained in the car while I tried to pick out fruit that she might like.  Pray for me as I try to get Dianne to eat fruit!!!  Visits by nursing and therapists is constantly evolving, so please call before visiting.  If you plan to send Dianne a card, please use our Home Address.  If you need our address, please call me at 330-425-8776.  Your prayers are working.  Thank you and please keep them coming.

Another good day.  Three therapy sessions and two hours of "shading" ourselves outdoors.  I'm amazed the "something" told me to make a Chicken Salad and put in the Cooler, so when Dianne's Dinner came today in the form of an Egg Salad Sandwich, she had the perfect complement.  Your prayers are working.  Thank you and please keep them coming.

Off to another great start.  I just received a good morning call from Dianne.  She is scheduled for three therapy sessions again today.  Thank you for your prayers, cards and visits.

The above photo of a window reflection is not the best, but it is Dianne enjoying the outdoors while taking a nap.  I'm positioned behind her chair so I could use my arm to prevent her from breaking her neck while practicing the "Head Snap."
