The $10 hair cuts will be at Angela’s Haven in Benvenue Plaza on Sunday, June 12, 2-6 PM. Be sure and come in for a DEAL of a CUT and support Colt!! Thanks to Krista !!!
Tammy reports that life got crazy there for a little while. Her mother and another son, Tanner, each had medical issues that needed immediate attention. She is happy to report that they both are doing better now.
So, what’s the news with Colt? Well, for right now, they are getting ready to take a break from physical therapy, which they’ve been receiving at Wake Med. They are going to purchase an E-stim bicycle to work out his arm and leg muscles in-home. This bike will not be covered by insurance, unfortunately, but they have used it at Wake Med and think it’s a wise purchase. It will keep Colt’s muscles better toned and open to signals from the brain so they don’t forget how to perform. It will also help maintain blood circulation in the arms and legs.
Colt is gaining weight and strength. He is just on the verge of driving his wheelchair with his hand. He has use of his biceps and shoulder muscles. His wrists are very weak, but “nothing’s out of the question yet,” Tammy said. They’re still working on those wrists.
The plan is for them to return to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta this summer.
