Singin' In The Rain

Just a quick update today on “the mighty Ted”. He achieved his one of his targets (places he told the Midwest University study group he plans to go on a regular basis) by making it to Wrigley Field to see a Cubs WIN!

Though it was a rain-shortened game, Ted and Rick navigated the streets of Chicago (with the help of the Cubs Express Bus from convenient Yorktown Mall) and enjoyed a great evening at Wrigley Field. Cubs 6, Pirates – 1. CUBS WIN!!! I forgot to ask if they sing “Go Cubs Go” and hoist the Win Flag when the game is called due to rain. (Yes – there are pictures but we need to get Rick back to Florida to pick up the camera cable so we can send them on to Mary for posting on the blog.)

Earlier in the day he visited another target, checking in at the Downers Grove Library to visit co-workers and show off his “BMW” wheelchair.

Today has been low-key recovering from yesterday and getting ready for his first out-patient therapy session. We are looking forward to a new set of schedules and goals!

That’s all for now.

Thanks everyone for all your support. As the “mighty Ted” says, “It makes a difference!”.
