André was in good spirits when I visited him in the hospital yesterday. He still can’t use his arms for much, but he can manoeuvre them more easily. He’s allowed to get up and walk a few steps (as long as he can carry the heavy casts). He also managed to read a newspaper yesterday. The doctor told him he would have to spend another week at the hospital, so lets hope he will be released next Friday. Incidentally, that is also the last day of school before the summer holidays, so I’ll be able to take care of him then.
I’m planning on spending much of today in the hospital so I can help him with eating and so on. Garret, thanks for your idea! In the hospital, he’s getting bottles of water. They put a straw in and tape it to the top of the bottle so the bubbles won’t push it out. It works quite well.
Hal, thank you for posting the photo of us in he kiva at Pecos. And thanks to others who have sent email!
