Our focus today was getting him settled in, so we didn't get a chance to check it all out, but I hear there is a courtyard, so I'm sure he'll be able to get outside a bit while there. That will be great. From what I understand he will be getting 2 hours of therapy 2 to 3 times a day - sounds pretty grueling, but he is ready to work and very motivated. He is also very disciplined, so I eagerly look forward to seeing his day-to-day progress.
If you are in the area and would like to visit, his room is 225. His phone number, directly to him, is (209) 573-7576. He also has a "prayer pager" that we were just given today through our church. If you are praying for him and would like him to know he has been prayed for, you can dial 654-8500. Then, after the beeps, enter the number 419, and then hang up. He will get the page and then see the number 419, which is a reminder of Philippians 4:19
"And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus."
