Thread Name: Art Thieme-UPDATE - 20 March 2012
Subject: RE: Art Thieme-UPDATE - He's BACK!!!
I just returned Art's phone call from last night. He sounded pretty good. He said he had typed up a new post to kind of clarify what he'd written, but it got lost. I told him we all knew what he meant anyway that he didn't need to worry about it.

He had a great time today with PT, actually walked 100 paces with a walker! Their goal is to optimize what he is able to do for more mobility, etc.

I don't want to steal all of what he has to tell us but, friends who live nearby are picking them up and taking them to dinner at their house. They both sound very excited about the thought of getting out and about for the first time in ages.

He also sounded pretty tickled that the nursing home folks have learned that he had "another life"...some of them were fans and let the others know. I told him he better watch out they'll have him singing or telling tall tales any time. His voice is still rough from medications, but I told him if we all start beaming our Mudcat mojo at his throat, ya never know what might open up!

It is so good to have him back and to be able to visit with him. I know he'll be back soon for another posting. Sure made him happy to come back and read all of your postings and see that the same wonderful people are still good members in standing at the Mudcat Café!*bg*
