Journal entry by Kurt Zuehlke

We have been at Lincoln, NE for one week now. We switched rooms and now have a south facing window and can look outside and see the sunshine. Trevor’s address now is:

Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital
5401 South St
Trevor Zuehlke L57
Lincoln, NE  68506

Trevor now gets to wear his own shorts and shirts and shoes, although I had to trade him my old broke in pair for his new stiff pair for now. Gone are a bunch of the lines, IV’s, and connections. His hair has grown back from where they had to shave for the procedures he had. We have been signed off to be able to take him outside on our own now.  It has been 55 degrees and sunny here the last two days, so we have taken him out to get some of that fresh outdoor air he loves. 
Today was his third full day of rehab, due to the weekend and holidays.  It has taken a lot of energy for him to get adjusted to the new routine, room, and staff, so the progress he has made in the last week is subtle to see, but there is a lot going on for him as he recovers from his injury. 
Last weekend, we were told of a huge crowd showing up in the middle of a blizzard to attend a benefit for Trevor at Britton’s new Event Center. We are very humbled to see and hear of the amount of support and work put into organizing such an amazing event. The Dueling Duo must have put on a memorable show. We really want to thank all of the people who had a hand in putting on such a show and fundraiser. Trevor will be truly amazed to know of so many people caring and showing compassion towards him. And as his parents, we don’t have the words to tell you how much we appreciate the show of support. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank anyone who has reached out in any way. 
Patients and caregivers love hearing from you; add a comment to show your support.
