has compressed fracture of the spine after a fall. Send cards & prayers
May 21, 2015 Update on Wil Parsels, PGP
All,  Wil is now in his 6 st week of hospital/rehab stay and he is working hard to come home.  The rehab in Egg Harbor Care Center is more intense than it was at Bacharach.  He continues to have an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon.  On the weekends it is 1/2 hour.  We saw the Surgeon today who is very pleased with him (except his incision on the top of his head.  It has never been covered and he wants to scratch it or just touch it)  The doctor gave him the devil today and tried to put an impression on him, just how harmful that is.  I hope he was listening.  Our goal is for him to come home in 2 weeks.  The surgeon feels he will do much better out of the hospital setting.  I have seen a great change in the week he has been at Egg Harbor.  Before he would not watch TV, and just had no interest in anything.  Slept most of the time.  He is now watching baseball (yes the Phillies) golf, and fishing shows. Also, looks at the newspaper and magazines.  I'm really happy with his recovery. It has been a long 6 weeks but I'm now seeing results and that has made it all worthwhile. Again, thanks for your prayers, calls, visits, and cards.   Joanne
