Encouraging news

Just spoke with the social worker and doctor. Jack's care team met this morning to discuss his progress and plan. He has made significant progress already and is really just needing to build endurance. They feel we may need to stay just another week! We are very excited. We were told it could be up to 6 weeks.

As far as the steroid withdrawal, his last dose was yesterday and he seems better already. His therapy sessions were good yesterday and so far have been good today. He still has periods of "fussiness" but that will linger for a couple days most likely.

Emily, one of the excellent physical therapists here, was prompting Jack as to what his big brother Kris did here at CMC. Kris, as many of you know, is finishing up his 3rd year of med school at UNC. After much discussion, Jack decided that Kris was responsible for parking cars.
