I received this post tonight from John Ruckelshaus:”For centuries dogs have been considered man’s best friend. There are rescue dogs. There are dogs who aid firefighters, there are dogs who rescue trapped humans buried in rubble. And then there is a dog named Teddy.Recently, the physical therapists discovered a “flicker” in Jay’s triceps. This is very exciting on multiple levels, most importantly, giving Jay new momentum in his therapy. Still, he has a long way to go in this marathon, but this is progress to be sure.
Today, two of Mary’s dear friends, Diane Smith and Sallie Jo Mitzell, took Jay’s best friend Teddy to Atlanta to be at Jay’s side as he continues his rehab. These are the long days in rehab for Jay. Marathon runners would say this is where you hit the wall; baseball players would say these are the dog days of summer.
Funny, with all that medical science has done for Jay thus far, today was the best prescription of all: his dog Teddy.”
As always, please continue to pray for a miracle.
