We have a date! Yes, Neil is coming home--and not a moment too soon. This morning he was asking me how far our home is from Kessler. I told him it takes about 45 minutes to get there. He said, "Let's go!" I'm so happy we could finally write on his calendar this afternoon the day we actually can get in the car and go. We still have lots of out patient therapy ahead, but I'm hoping that being in a familiar environment will help him get a handle on some of his confusion about time and place.
We so appreciate those who have been able to come and visit. Sometimes Neil may seem a little distracted or tired, but we frequently look at the door poster with the visitor tags and talk about who has come. It's a good exercise for his memory. It's not too late to come by. We have eleven days left!
