Not a family member, just a non-collector friend.


Original problem was that knees, hips and shoulders did not react to brain requests. Could not move legs or arms although could be moved by outside manipulation. He could move his feet and arms from the elbows so could feed himself. He awoke Saturday morning with some but incomplete use of his arms and legs. By yesterday his physical therapist had him up to sitting on the edge of the bed and feet moving on the floor, today's goal is for him to stand with assistance.


He still lacks fine muscle control, very difficult to type or even talk clearly. Updates when available.


He says to thank everyone for their prayers.
