Cherie and I in October at her home in Vero Beach
A quick note to tell you that Cherie is doing well in South FL and staying warm (note the wrap and at the fancy matching jewelry that I picked out this morning I stayed over to see her in October).
For those of you who do not know Cherie's story, read about her journey and battle with spinal cord injury here:
Currently her PT and OT therapists are busy filming her standing up in the standing frame and filling out forms to apply for her to return to Shepherd Center for Spinal Cord Rehab in Atlanta where she could gain more training and therapy.
Cherie spent some time there after getting out of intensive care in Florida, but now that she has gained a bit more strength and movement, we are hoping that she is a candidate for even more therapy.
Keep her in your thoughts and in your heart that she will soon be on the road to Atlanta. She will have to buy a new handicapped van in order to get there, her current one is old and won't make the trip.
We love you Cherie!! Well wishers can email her or mail her notes and cards of encouragement, which she absolutely LOVES! Cherie's mother was a fine artist who gave me some of my first exposure to museums and art when she and I were just kids. I've know Cherie all my life.
If you want to send Cherie and art card or words of encouragement, email me for more info:
