Update on Charles

Charles wearing a new hat and holding his cards and coffee money. From Mary Lynn: "Thank you for all of the cards, gifts, money and prayers that you are sending to Charles. We saw him this weekend and he is definitely more tired and weaker than he was at Easter. The cards are bringing him so much joy. He asked his house mom if she would hang them on the wall, and she said she would get some bulletin boards for him, and we will add more as needed. He is still not complaining about anything, and I even got a big smile out of him. His doctor is amazed that he is still mobile and doing as well as he is, but I did not come away with any optimism this weekend. He doesn't really want to go out any more, not eating much, but thank God, he is still in no pain! I love all that this group has done for me and for Charles and I thank you from the bottom of my heart." Charles and Mary Lynn

I'm so glad he's in no pain! I need to rummage up his address and send him a card-I think you sent it to me, no?

Oh Toni,
Thank you so much for posting an update. I am so glad he is happy. I love that smile he has and the cards in his lap as well as the dollars in his little hands. I sent out another one today and will work on another one later today. Rick sent him the entire season of Walker texas ranger to watch. We have adopted him
