The Newest news in Mel's World
On July 21st Ray and I, Mel and Jacob traveled to Denver Colorado for a one week evaluation for Mel at Craig Hospital. Craig is a Rehab Hospital made exclusively for people that have had a brain or spinal cord injury. By the 3rd day of evaluations the hospitals asked if Mel could stay for at least a month. They felt there was so much they could help Mel with and just not enough time. So we are very excited and overwhelmed with this journey. As you know Ray and I have and will do everything we can to make sure Mel gets the best and appropriate care.
They have already worked on medication changes that revealed immediate differences in Mel's activity levels.
They have checked his eyes and determined that he needs a special kind of glasses called prisms. We cannot bring Mel’s eyes down so this helps bring the world up so he can see the world around him better.
They have been working on his wheelchair and designing it to better fit him and be comfortable but yet challenge him. Rebuilding his stamina and muscles hopefully one day if he has to have a wheelchair he will have the freedom of moving it by himself.
So it is just day 4 at Craig and now it looks like we will be here till the end of August. Thank you to all of Mel supporters we could not do this without you.
Blessing to All,
~angel and ray
