Journal entry by Nana Manley

It has been a crazy eight days for us!  Mom and I have been packing up the house in NC and I am now in Colorado packing up my apartment.  Mom and I will fly back home late on Monday April 5th and mom is so excited to see dad on April 6th!!

The house has been sold in NC and we start our lease on our apartment in Rochester, MN on April 10th.  

Dad is being well taken care of by his sisters Peggy, Missy, and Marc since mom and I can not be there. 
with him to complete our moves.  Dad has enjoyed some Wong’s Cafe food which is one of our favorite restaurants in Rochester.  Missy brought that up for him and also brought him our favorite chips and dip, affectionately known as “Minnesota Crack” up in Minnesota.  

He has been at Courage Kenny for 10 days and we already have witnessed amazing progress!  Caring Bridge is not letting me post a video of dad moving his left big toe!!!  He also is moving his arm higher and near his head!!!  He is working hard and this is exactly the reason he needed to get to a rehab program as soon as possible!!  Dad and our family want to thank all of you for your love, support, and prayers🙏🏻  Keep praying and hoping for more miracles💜
