That is the big news from yesterday. He stood up and with assistance he took his first steps since this whole thing started. They were few and we had to convince him to stop and sit down but he did walk. We had a good happy cry after that one.
In other good news, he spent most of his day sitting up in a chair. Baby steps but each is a jewel right now.
We are waiting for two other doctors to sign off on getting him to rehab so cross your fingers that we will be doing so. I will know some time this morning and update this post as to whether we are going or not. I am packing everything up and assuming that we are going so we can go from Orlando to Jacksonville with him and set him up in his new digs.
Ariel is taking the train from Orlando to Bridgeport today. So either way, she is starting her travels home. She needs a ride from the Bridgeport train station to her dorm room. Could the Usual Suspects that have her phone number arrange to help me get her there? Contact Ariel for the details.
After we get him settled, I am taking Caroline to Atlanta to my parents’ house from which we will depart for home. I have to return the rental car and the like. Whole bunch of new details come into play at that point but I am hoping to get her back home with her cats and familiar surroundings.
Then we wait and hope that we can get Peter back to us as soon as possible.
I will be continuing to update things on Peter’s site and on my site as I have information and the like.
We are still working on the donate button but should have something in place along with an auction to pay for the bills that we are looking at with some abject terror. But more on that later in the week when I have a moment to think things through. Right now I am still going from moment to moment solving things as best I can.
If you have gotten in touch with me and I haven’t responded, I do apologize. I will be going through my e-mail and Peter’s and get back to people in a couple of days. This goes for Facebook friending and notes and a lot of other things.
Right now my focus is on Peter and getting him where he needs to be so that he can get better and come home.
I am grateful to everyone who has helped in this situation and to everyone who cares about Peter. It means a lot to him and a lot to me.
