On the positive side, the local Physio has made contact again and is arranging for specialist exercises in the local hospital to help with the balance problems and to help rebuild the body/muscle. The Occupational Therapist has also made contact again and suggested Colin sings(!) along to his favourite music to help with the residual speech problems - although these have significantly improved. Colin is also practicing his handwriting which is slowly improving thanks to some guidance from a Ladybird book from many years ago!
Continuing thanks to all of you who have made contact recently - all emails/comments are read and noted even if they have not all made it to the blog or been replied to. We hope there will be some more positive news to report soon.
Colin (& Jane).
