Update on Graham Armstrong
(EDITOR’S NOTE: We have been told Graham has a TV now. Pat Shields gave us this update)
The year is starting off on a positive note! In the past few weeks, Graham was able to move from ICU to PCU, start talking and start eating soft foods and today he was discharged from Kaiser! He still has a lot of health issues and has been moved to a rehab facility where they can work closely on his care. He can’t exert himself too much and is… confined to bed but he welcomes visitors and is appreciative of all of your cards, letters, FB messages and phone calls. The facility is All Saints Health Care, 11810 Saticoy Street, Room 27C, North Hollywood, CA 91605, 818-982-4600. The nurse said that he cannot have flowers or balloons in his room but other gifts are OK. No food gifts, though, since he’s on a special diet.
We would like to create a team of friends who are able to visit Graham on a regular basis, like once a week or every 2 weeks. Of course this is easier for people who live in the Valley. EJ Sayles has been a daily visitor and it appears to have made a difference in Graham’s mental state and it also changed the medical staff’s treatment of him, once they saw that someone was there every day checking on him. He’s come a long way in the last 6 weeks and we’d like to see him continue to heal. Can we get some “brother’s keepers” to commit to stopping by to check on him? EJ’s been a real trouper and our on-the-scene reporter but she’s going to need some help now that he’s further away. If you can join the team, please send us an inbox message.
The second request is for a TV. Does anyone have an extra one they can donate for his room? Unlike the hospital, you have to bring your own. Inbox us about that as well.
Thanx everyone. Your prayers and expressions of concern have been instrumental to his recovery thus far. Everyone who counted him out just 2 months ago are impressed by his improvement. Brotherman decided that he wasn’t done yet and he’s right. God is not finished with him yet. The best is yet to come!
