Better late than never!
Yesterday was a great day for Adam. He was able to learn a few of the things he needs to work on from his therapists. They say his audio and visual memory is good, it's the reading and remembering that he has some issues with. They said his balance is great and that his shoulder is coming around! Today however, his shoulder was really sore, but I think that's to be expected! And because he's doing so well, he gets the evenings off to go out with Dad and Mom and Dewayne. Last night they went to Chili's for supper. I just got off the phone with Adam a few minutes ago and he was at Dad's hotel room downloading iTunes onto his phone. They had went to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. He said that he could stay out on Friday's until 11pm, but was getting tired and was close to wanting to get back to the "commune" as he calls it! Saturdays he can be out from 10a-11p and then on Sundays from 10a-10p. Then during the week I think it's from after therapy until 10p. The Cub's are playing the Braves next week so I told him he needs to take in a game while he's there. He said Dad was already on top of it. Things seem to be looking up on a more regular basis for him. They gave an estimated date of release, but he's hoping that he'll be out before that. He said that one of his therapists said that it can be moved up depending on how well he progresses but it should never move back! So overall he's doing very well. At 3:30 in the morning, it'll be 6 weeks. It's absolutely amazing to see how well he's done in just this short amount of time. People say it's crazy that it's been that long already, just doesn't seem like it. To us, it seems like the fastest and slowest 6 weeks of our lives...is that possible?! Keep saying those prayers and he'll be back before we all know it! Tomorrow if the weather permits he said they might go to a fair in downtown Atlanta. Will try to keep everyone better updated over the weekend, I was slacking yesterday!!! But it was a much needed slacking! :-)
