Thank you for the comments. I really appreciate them. I'll be in a number of therapy things today. I'll update how they decide I am so far...

It was pretty good. However, apparently a few days ago I stopped being able to smell or taste anything. They aren't really sure what is causing it right now. It could be some allergy issues or some brain issues. :(

Other than that, I'm progressing really well. The speech therapist has some goals to help my brain function really well. She said my speech and thoughts were top of the line right now. There is still a few functions that will take about a month to try and use to trigger my brain to fire off in a lot of great ways.

Physically therapist said I was doing extremely well, and my muscles are still kinda weak, but they are doing well. Only going to have to do her program for two weeks.

Thanks for the responses.

I wonder if he still remembers us?

Hope he's still okay.

Sorry I haven't responded again. I just haven't really been on the internet that much.

Physical therapy - doing great. My muscles are still badly deteriorated, but they are rebuilding slowly. I've been lifting slightly during the day, along with balance and coordination system tests. Everything is doing well considering that I couldn't even walk a few weeks ago. I can walk again just fine, jog slowly, squat, leg press, leg curls, so I'm doing better.

Occupational Therapy - evaluation was amazing. The therapist stated that I did very well, and there wasn't a single thing she could write down against me. She was very positive with the results she got from her evaluation today.

Speech Therapist - blew me around today with some math tests and a few other types of word/math issues. I didn't have any issues with it and finished it really well, and quick. She was impressed and gave me great reviews for my accomplishments.

I later did some basic knowledge questions and did perfect on those as well.

I'm healing well, somethings slower than others, but still healing. My brain still has bruising so it's going to take a little while for it to heal properly.

Thank you all for your reading and comments.

Interesting...so you were able to taste and smell and then all of a sudden you couldn't? I'd be very interested to know if your smell and taste return, James, when you've completely healed. I will be praying for you that this is so.

Thank you so much. It will take some time, but 100% is exactly what I am going to accomplish.

Thank you for the comment and prayers. It makes my eyes water just thinking about the people that have done this for me. I'm extremely emotional and I want to thank you in person if I could.
