Spencer got his chest tube out of his left lung yesterday – another huge step forward. Today he had a special visitor, Looby, the therapy dog. Looby stopped by to say hello and see how Spencer was doing.
Spencer also had a Physical Therapy visit to do some exercises for his arms and legs in bed. He is starting to feel peppier. Spencer is beginning to crack jokes, whether it’s pretending to be passed out with his eyes closed and his tongue out (to scare everyone) or constantly going “Boom” as he hits his morphine button.
He’s also happy because he got another 50 notes to read today! The hospital has been printing them out in batches because there is such a large amount of them. Thanks again to everyone who has sent one in. The stack has grown to over an inch thick.
Spencer is in a new room which is where he will be for awhile. The new address is:
Attn: Spencer Bean
200 Hawkins Drive
Iowa City, Iowa 52242
Tomorrow is a big day and Spencer is really excited as he is hoping to get out of bed for the first time since his injury. It won’t be an easy day, but it’s a huge hurdle to cross. Look for a great update tomorrow!
Just to get an idea of who much support Spencer has gotten, we’ve had over 6,000 people check on Spencer from over 30 countries. Pretty incredible, thank you again everyone, it has been a huge help during these difficult times.
