Physical Therapists or Physical Terrorists?

    Today the PT, (Physical Therapist) came in and worked with Randy.  He is trying to wake him up and have him move his muscles.  One of the first ways peoples muscles work is to annoy him so they have a withdrawal from things they don’t like,  like cold or pain.  He put a ice pack on his head.  Randy moved his head to withdraw from it.  Then he put it on his arms and legs, he moved them also.  Yes he didn’t like it,  but he moved to get away from it. 
    They said he would be worn out for about 3 days after they moved him and that has been  true.  He has moved less since the move.  Today will be three days so it will be interesting to see if he starts moving more today.   
     They are trying to wean him off the ventilator.  When they tried before it was unsuccessful.  He wasn’t ready yet.  They are doing it a little slower this time.   
       I hung the “Get well Bishop, We Love You” pictures up of the Primary in his room.  I showed them to him when he had an eyes ½ way open moment.  I think he liked them.  I know the nurses did. 
      Please remember him in your prayers this fast Sunday .  I think when you fast and pray it is like prayers on steroids.  I can’t wait to see how much he improves after this week .
       Thank you for all the service that you have been doing for our family.  We really appreciate it.
