He is now in a nursing home to recieve further rehab care. We are hoping he is home by spring at the latest. Tomorrow morning before work Leah and I are going to take all the presents under the tree and spend Christmas morning with him.
It is clear they have him in speech therapy because he is so much easier to understand and it is so hard to get him to shush. I can't go see him before work on some days because I never leave with enough time to get there. He should be home towards the end of March!
I talked to his main nurse today and since his progress is moving so slowly and since he has been at that hospital for almost three weeks now, his girlfriend and I, with the help of the nurse are going to find a nursing home that has beds for Medicaid patients. So he won't be comin home for a while. He has no sight what so ever in his left eye, and still cannot use his left leg. His left arm can m More...
I just got back from seeing him. He was more awake than the past couple days and his girlfriend was there, too. He was joking around about missing the cats and trying to convince me to smuggle one of them in to the hospital. He can move his left arm a little, but is having trouble with his left leg. He had me bring him his laptop so tomorrow he should be back to his usual Facebook all day ways. Pl More...
Went to see him again today. He was sitting up in a wheelchair with his computer in front of him. He was checking Facebook and then we had a nice 30 minute Skype call with my mom. He is talking a lot better and can move his left hand a few inches. Every day at about 2pm he has an hour or so of physical therapy to help him relearn how to use his left side.
Well, he is still in the nursing home, but he is coming home before Christmas. I start learning how to help him move when we get back from California. He can talk, especially now that he has dentures again. He can pull his left leg along when someone is supporting his right side. He can hug me with both arms. Making some great progress.
Very good! I have three days off a week, but I use them to sleep! I work at the Einsteins Bagels in the Detroit metro airport.. Which is the second busiest einsteins in the COUNTRY. It's kind of awesome. If I want to go run around the airport randomly, I don't need a ticket!
No tattoo idea anyone ever has will be cuter than this. I might have to dig out a drawing my daughter did a few years ago and see how much she laughs at me before she realizes I am serious! I agree with the first comment of you will never regret that. It's so special!
She appreciates all this. I didn't know anything about it until last night! I was watching the local news and she was the lead story! Wen the cops get the 17 year old, he's going away. He has a list of priors and Rissa will be taking legal action against them.
I have been punched in the face by the joint forces of allergies and heat here in Michigan, I am going to sprawl on the living room floor in front of the fan and watch stuff on Netflix. I think a friend might be coming over and we are gonna go to the movies.
Groundbreaking for the Temple of the Forbidden Eye occurred in August 1993. More than 400 Imagineers worked on its design and construction. Tony Baxter led a core project team of nearly 100 Imagineers.
Several early concepts were considered for Indy including a walk-through adventure and a high-speed mine car adventure within a temple. To avoid a long queue, Imagineers even considered using Jungle Cruise launches to shuttle guests to the loading area. The team tested key show elements in a Burbank warehouse on a full-sized elevated track that resembled a freeway. This enabled the team to test set pieces, lighting, effects, transport clearances and motion profiles.
To create space for the 0.5-mile queue area and the 50,000-square-foot show building, an area of the former "Eeyore" parking lot was demolished, and the Monorail and Jungle Cruise attractions were rerouted. As I'm sure some of you know, an old Eeyore parking sign is hidden up in the rafters high above the projection room (in the queue). The sign pays homage to the Eeyore Parking Lot.
To watch some scenes from the opening ceremony:
Happy 19th birthday Indy!
Have you been on this attraction? If so, what is your favorite part or scene?
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a magnificent Monday!
