Shepards Center Evaluation

Tuesday Shepard's Center from Atlanta is sending a representative to evaluate Holli to see if she is a candidate for their facility. They are specialized in brain trauma patients and hopefully be able to help Holli progress with her rehab. Of course they have to get her insurance to agree with this move to Atlanta. I am praying that this door will be open to Holli so she can hopefully regain more use of her body. She is doing well with her talking and taking thickening liquids and yogurt. She has been having a very hard time the past several months with severe leg cramps and spasms that causes her to get very agitated at times and other times to cry. We have been trying different medications to try to control her discomfort but she still has been having several rough days lately. It breaks my heart to see her suffering and upset. Please keep Holli in your thoughts and prayers.

Holli's Birthday

Sunday, Valentines Day, is Holli's birthday. We plan to have a small birthday party for her at Madison with friends and family. It is hard to believe that on the 24 th of this month that it will be a year since Holli's accident in India. What a journey it has been for the both of us.
It is so great that in the last three weeks that Holli is talking more and more and she has begun to start eating again. This weekend she ate strawberry yogart, apple sauce, thicken apple juice and a couple of bites of banana. She thinks they taste "great" but she keeps talking about steak & shrimp, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, broccoli..... It is great that she is wanting food. As soon as we get the okay from her speech therapist I will do my best to get the foods she is craving! She is also wanting red velvet cake for her birthday.
Holli got her new feeding tube inserted this past Thursday at the hospital where I worked for 37 years. It was good knowing the nurses and staff that took care of Holli for the procedure. They did a excellent job and everything went very smoothly. Now I am trying to find a physician that will take her insurance to start her botox injections that she needs for the tone in her right arm ,leg and neck. I am also trying to get Holli accepted to Shepard's Center in Atlanta which is a special facility for brain injury patients that do great work rehabbing patients back to their full potential. I am needing your special prayers again that she will be accepted. They are in the process of reviewing her case and making a decision.

Benefit for Holli

I know this is short notice but I just got a text from Holli's good friend, Curtis, who lives in San Francisco and is giving a benefit for Holli this Thursday, Feb. 4th at 8 pm. He wanted to be able to get the word out to her friends there in SF. It will be at McTeagues Saloon 1237 Polk SF, CA. They will have Matt the Electrician (from Austin, Tx.), the Mission Street Stranglers and then
Whiskey Pills Fiasco with Jinx Jones. Donations at the door. I hope you can be there.
