05-31-08 Happy Birthday Mike...

Mike is doing great. He goes to therapy two to three days per week. He is able to walk about 100 feet. He gets really tired by the end of the day but we feel that is pretty normal. He is really glad to be home. He has seen a lot of his old friends lately. They hug and their eyes water. It is really touching. Mike is glad to be alive and he didn't realize how sick he was. Brenda is back at work three days a week. Mike's therapy is at the same place as Brenda's work. He sometimes rides in with her and then goes to his mom and dad's house. He has gotten rides from others and he appreciates that. He is not ready to start driving yet. He still cannot feel his feet and doesn't feel it would be safe to drive. He has lost his reflexes and the neurologist thinks that will not return. All and all, we are really grateful to our Heavenly Father for all our blessings. We thank everyone for their good thoughts and prayers in our behalf.

How is Mike doing now? My mom was just diagnosed with Guillain-Barre-Syndrome also. My mom was pretty healthy, played tennis 5 days/week. She has been in hospital for over a month and is finally getting better. Our blog tells all we have been through in detail at http://bonniesgbsjourney.blogspot.com/ Jeanie
