    Damon was re admitted back into rehab the day after Memorial Day. His spirits are so much higher now that he is back at rehab and active. He is getting back to his old self. We were informed that Damon has lost a significant amoun of weight. This was expected though due to the fact that he didn't eat any solid foods for over month along with no activity or exercise. Once he started rehab, he was so happy to just be active again. The doctors at the rehab facility told him that he is moving at a faster pace than what they expected. Which is GREAT news. Damon was so happy to hear this and he said it made him even more determined to walk out of rehab. He currently does have his phone back and talks via Bluetooth. Once again, he refuses to eat the food there at the facility so we have to bring him food and he always calls his mother to make him his favorite meals. That is one big concern to the nurses and doctors there; the fact that he is not eating. The first couple of days he was there, he ate a lot and was throwing up a lot. So since that happened, he refuses to eat the food there. Sounds just like him! The feeding tube is no longer in his nose because he was eating but they are afraid they might have to put it back in because he isn't eating a lot. As far as rehab is going, Damon says they work him HARD. He is pretty much doing different types of therapy all day and it wears him out!!!! Thank you everyone for their support and we will keep you updated on his progress at rehab!

    Yesterday, Damon was admitted back into the hospital from his rehab center. We were told that he stopped breathing but was not aware that he wasn't breathing. His doctors at the rehab center requested that he come back to the hospital so that his breathing can be monitored at all times. Once he arrived at the hospital, the doctors said everything was fine with him and there was no reason he should have come back. As of today, he has been re-admitted back into the hospital for a few precautionary tests and until Krieger is ready to accept him back. We're told the rehab facility does not admit patients on weekends or Mondays but hopefully we can pull some strings and get him back to rehab as soon as possible. We will keep you posted.
