Health Announcements

Jul 7, 2015 Update on Wil Parsels, PGP
All, Tomorrow Wednesday, July 8 Wil is moving to The Shores of Wesley Manor at the end of our street.  It will make for a more sane time for me.  He will continue to have IV antibiotic for at least 4 weeks as well as physical and cognitive therapy.  He actually kissed the admissions lady that visited him today from The Shores. I do think he feels he is that much closer to coming home.  He is doing quite well.  Thanks you, thank you for all of your support, prayers, cards, and visits.   Joanne
