Keith Jarrett, quietly in the night
Fred saw the occupation therapist this morning. today it is one week since his stroke. he is making progess...slow but really good progress.he could stand with weight on both legs if only for a moment it is remarkable . his left side was effected so it's most important that his left leg could hold his weight. h'ell see the physical therapist and spech therapist this afternoon and the OT as well. speech is excellent, circular as always and abstract. meg had him writing poetry last night he wrote"still here...here still...blue pencil almost invisible like I feel my life is fading, slipping way before me...BUT a stroke is new to me, it is a mystery .... Kieth Jarred piano concert, Koln , quietly in the background...and I don't know what to do and how this will work out."
