We continue to thank God for Jennifer's progress.
1. We moved back up to our bedroom upstairs. Jennifer is navigating the stairs confidently-but does hold on to the railing going each way.
2. We moved out the upright piano we inherited from Jennifer's mother (dozens of keys had stopped working) and brought in a digital piano (with weighted, hammer-style key feel). So, Jennifer is playing the piano again.
3. Her diarrhea is slowly improving. Not yet gone, but less than last week.
4. She is doing some reading without her eye patch. With a lot of effort, she can bring the double vision into single focus. She spends a few hours a day without the patch, trying to get more minutes of conjugate (non-double) vision. We head back to WVU Eye Center on Friday for her second (monthly) ophthalmology follow-up appointment. Don't expect much in terms of treatment, just getting some more data on her curve of recovery.
5. She's routinely walking a couple of miles a day, sometimes on the gravel road and sometimes up through our woods. Yesterday, I took all of the disability equipment (a wheelchair, a walker, and a tub bench) to GoodWill for donation --hopefully, someone else will find those things useful which we no longer need.
Just a shout out to the Africa Area Regional Supervisor and Team Leaders who have picked up every ball which we dropped in September. Life marches on without us and it's fantastic to see people step into the gap without needing to be asked. I am slowly beginning to reconnect with our Africa-based Serge leaders, but every conversation I have with them reveals what capable leaders we have.
