Getting some more grip in my left hand

Great news and more steady progress.

I also saw that you started reading Our Mutual Friend. That's great!

Excellent news! Wish you the best of luck and I'm sure you'll soon be back to your complete former self.

The choir of St Paul's Episcopal Church in Delray Beach Florida will sing my arrangement of "the Epiphany hymn Brightest and Best from The Southern Harmony during the service Sunday January the service will live stream on YouTube. Paul tells me they will likely sing my anthem ca. 11am Chowder Time.

We must distinguish "heart-melting" from "heart-warming." There is a difference of degree.

Karl has written a quick note to me:  he is now staying at a friend's house.  Having improved to the level where he is now considered an "out-patient," he is staying there because it is close to the therapy center.

Karl wrote and said he bundled up and took a walk today with his friend, and it felt like Life was getting back to normal, with the caveat that he still suffers weakness on his left side.

Official therapy starts up again tomorrow!   

Again, very good news!

That's a very encouraging sign.

Glad things are improving for Karl. I never like to see anyone in any kind of pain.

Karl wrote to me just now: he has not had his laptop for a few days, and went back to his house to retrieve it.  He said he handled the stairs successfully, perhaps with a little difficulty, but he made it!  Speech therapy continues, even tomorrow, a Sunday.

Again, good news!
