Hey Phyllis,
I was wondering if you could give me an update on Cindy and Jack.
How are they doing now?
Therapy going well?
How are their kids and family handling it?
Thanks so much,
Sorry it has been awhile since I asked. We always pray for them in Church. I pray for them everyday through out the day!
I hope they are doing some better!

Hi Sarah! They are both doing good, and are both at home. Cindy's going to be getting her prosthetic soon, and Jack is getting therapy at home and has more surgeries on his leg coming up during the next 1 1/2 to 2 years. Right now, he has lost about 40 pounds and needs to build back up. I have a feeling since he's home now, he'll be eating better and putting some weight back on. They both sound good, and upbeat, and have familly there helping them with things that need doing, and helping to take care of them and the kids. They are going to be OKAY! Thank you all for the prayers for them. Jack had just built them a huge 2-story home, and they'd been living there maybe 6 months or so, as I understand it, before this happened. The house is huge, and accomodates the wheelchairs and other things very good. They've had to move from sleeping upstairs, to downstairs, but that's not a big thing - at least they're home!!

when i had my stroke, my real straight-talking doctor walker (reminds me of dr phil) asked if anything was bothering me - so i said yeah and explained that i had a roof all tore open and had to make sure it got fixed before it rained or something. he didn't hesitate to tell me that that's now somebody else's headache cuz most people that come thru here in my condition never get to see their roofs again, that they get to the care home or rehab and something happens or whatever, so let's deal with what we can repair! boy, didn't take me long to quit fretting about the silly roof :) (turned out the boys did cover it anyway) i recently saw a thing on tv where they're designing "universal" houses with bigger front doors and wider hallways and swing room and ramps and such, that will accomodate wheelchairs or whatever - take my word - you never know when that stuff will come in handy and you won't be able to supervise then! :)
