Oh wait . . . not that kind of rehab!

I talked to my mom this morning and she said Kent's rehab is going really well. They had him walk on the treadmill, as well as play catch and tug of war with a dog that they bring in. He did some worksheets that involved matching as well as strengthening his left eye. Everyone says that he is doing great.

He has also rediscovered text messaging as some of you may already know. Last night during dinner he sent Bethany a text message that said something along the lines of "I'm starving and stranded! Bring me some food and I will buy you some." At least some things are back to normal. We have found that blending soup works really well for him as we continue to try to stuff the calories in him. There are some weight gaining shakes that we found that will give him 1850 of his 2000 calories in one serving. Hopefully we won't have to resort to that.

They have also started giving him stuff to help him sleep so he can get back on a normal schedule. Last night he was tired and kicked us out of his room. I think he might just be sick of looking at us and ALWAYS having someone in his room. I offered to bust him out tonight and he text-ed back endorsing the idea. However, I don't think Ben and I are THAT sneaky.

Nice video to add Tracey. Gave us a good laugh since that's really what Kent is probably saying. I am going to try to get down in the next day or two to see him.

Keep up the good work Kent. I can't believe what a strong young man you are. You are an inspiration to all those who read about your progress. We love you.
