I don't know much about his head injury. The Dr who is taking over for him while he recuperates is his buddy and he is going to visit Greg on Tuesday. I will see him next Thursday so I will have more to share then.

The fill in chiropractor went to see Dr Greg this week. He is doing well. He has a tube in his throat so he can't speak but he nods his head to answer questions. He rolls his eyes when his noisy roommate makes too much noise, to say "this guy is driving me crazy". So we can tell that the ol Greg is still in there and just needs time to heal. Greg and I tease each other a lot and so by hearing this, I know that my friend is doing ok, he just can't use the voice.
Thanks for your prayers. he still has a long road ahead but he is making progress.

Oh poor Greg...it really does sound like a long road. No I'm sure this is such a frustrating time for him, since it sounds like he is totally 'there', but can't communicate fully. Thanks for the update Marilyn....he remains in my prayers.

Dr Chad went to visit with Dr Greg again this week. He was sleeping like a baby so he didn't wake him up. But there have been interesting developments. The tube has been removed from his throat and he can talk now. But he has only spoken in FRENCH!! Dr Greg went to a French speaking school growing up so he does know how to speak the language but as far as I know, he has not spoken in English. This kinda worries me because head injuries are so unpredictable. But God is in control and I know that things will work together for good, that's His promise.
Thanks for praying everyone. Please keep it up.

The good dr has spoken in English. Whew, that is an answer to prayer.
He is getting there but still has a long road ahead. Please keep praying.

Oh my goodness, that is so odd that he spoke in French first, when it's not his first language! OhMy His wife must have been shocked! I'm glad the English is coming around and that he seems to be progressing. My prayers continue for Dr. Greg.

Hope Dr. Greg gets out of the hospital soon. Praying for him.

Dr Greg has been moved from a downtown Toronto hospital to the one at the end of my street. It is much easier for his wife and girls to visit him. His visitors are still limited but I will be there once the regular crowd is allowed to visit. He will soon go into rehab too so the news continues to get better and better. He has begun to walk short distances as well. God is good.

My friend Greg had a really good weekend. It seems that he has turned a corner in his progress and is doing new things that he hasn't done since before his accident. His wife is only allowing family and close friends in to visit him but hopefully if he continues as he has, I will be able to go and see him soon. He is only 5 minutes from where I presently sit. So close and yet so far. Thanks to all for your prayers. Please keep praying.

I am going to the hospital to see DR GREG!!!! I can't wait.
His wife asked him if I could come and see him and he told her that he would love to see me. Now we are trying to work out a time that she and I can both visit at once. I will let you know how he is after seeing him.
Thanks so much for your prayers and please continue. Patty and I thank you so much!

I saw Dr. Greg's wife in the office yesterday and we arranged for me to visit him at the hospital on Sunday afternoon. I learned a bit about his condition and all things are going very well but it will ta,e time for him to heal. I can't wait to see him, it will be exciting. I'll let you know how it goes.

Dr Greg knew me when I went in to visit him this afternoon. He called me by my initials (MB) just as he always did. At first he talked about things that I had no idea what he was talking about but his wife clued me in. He had a nap and Patty told me the story of what exactly happened. I must say, we are so very lucky that he is still alive.
Greg and I chatted after his nap and he remembered some things and didn't remember others. We talked about my mom playing hockey, he remember that she played but he couldn't remember her name. He told me about his injuries but some of what he was telling me didn't make sense. His MIL corrected him and then he remembered. It was sad to see but encouraging that he remembers things from before his accident.
I prayed with him before I left and he was encouraged.
He is a dear friend and I thank you for your prayers and ask that you continue to pray for Dr Greg. It will be a long time before he is back in the office but I know that he will be back. I am thankful that I had the chance to visit him and plan to visit again.
God is good and He is in control.

I have just come from another visit with Dr. Greg. He is really doing well, I see many changes in him from the post above. He remembers so much more, it is truly a blessing.
Tomorrow he is leaving this hospital and being transferred to a rehab hospital where they will work with his mobility as well as his brain injury. He told me that right after breakfast, he will be going to courses from 9 am til 5 and then after dinner he will have homework. When I asked what type of courses and what kind of homework, he said that it has to do with his brain, to help him remember.
He is regaining the weight that he had lost and looks much more like himself. We teased each other like we always did, I am so blessed! I have never been so thankful to be teased before.
Please continue to pray for Dr Greg. He has a ways to go yet before he is back to the old grind but the worse of it is over.
Love to all, from both of us.

Oh my gosh, Marilyn, I can't believe I missed your previous post in January!! OhMy I am so sorry.

But I am THRILLED to hear about Dr. Greg's improvements! Thank God. He sounds like such a strong man and is working hard to get back where he needs to be. And the fact that he can even tease and joke around with you? That's just amazing. I am so pleased to hear the news, and I will definitely continue to pray for him. I would love to continue to hear updates from time to time as you hear anything. Sorry I missed the last one! Yikes

You are such a good friend to him. He is blessed to have such a caring friend! loveheart
