Upate on Dad...

HE WIGGLED HIS TOES!!!!!
YES, Mom and Dad called to let me know the good news. He can now wiggle his toes with purpose! On purpose, and on command! YIPPEE!! It is a start, and hopefully the movement will go up his legs, and soon he will be able to walk again. I know he has a VERY long recovery ahead of him, but this is a start!
He will probably be moved to a specialty hospital on Monday. Not the rehabilitation hospital where he previously was, but a different one where they can continue to give him the help and care he needs...but not a "skilled nursing" facility. Their insurance will cover this hospital, so we are glad he gets to go there until he's ready for the rehab hospital.
Please continue to pray for his strength and courage, as well as mom's. Pray that they can continue to improve in the pain management area...and that movement will continue to return. Thank you to everyone for their continued love and support through all of this.
Blessings-Andie

Congrats to you and your dad! I read this on Sunday and called my mom right away. I am so glad they found somewhere for him to go that insurance will cover. That must be a giant weight off of all your shoulders. Now he can really concentrate on getting all better!
Love to you all,
Loni
