Counting down the Days

Not much new and exciting going on out here. It has gotten a little bit colder, but not much. Temp is in the low to mid 70's during the day, and the 40's at night. I expected a little more rain, but there hasn't been much. I finished my college classes up. They went pretty smoothly overall. Hopefully I will follow up on that when I get home. Last week, I told you about meeting the football players, particularly about the guy behind me having a picture of Brian "The Boz" Bosworth getting trucked by Bo Jackson. I ended up bumping into the guy the other day and asked him how it went, and he said The Boz was really cool about it, and signed the picture "Bo Knows The Boz". Our relief should be getting here in a month to do turnover. It's all down hill from there.

Update on Dave
: The newest on Dave, is they moved him from ICU to a regular room, and are on there way to moving him to a rehabilitation center in either Philly or Richmond. He is still in a coma, but has shown improvements. In the accident he had injured his jaw and had to have it wired shut. Lately, he has been breaking the wires. They think it might be from yawning, but they aren't sure. They also said it appears his eyes are tracking movements, but they aren't sure if he sees people or just a shadow of them. His therapist asked him to kiss a picture of his daughter, and he did. They did an EEG which did show some slight improvements. They are planning to do an MRI which should shed more light. It has been awhile since they have done one. Last time, they were having trouble distinguishing blood from actual damage.
