Scott is Walking!

Scott got out of his bed for dinner tonight and sat in a chair. Then he went for a walk down the hall (with Ben close by...just in case!) and he did great. I'm home with the kids right now but I heard he went for a second walk since I left. He will see a physical therapist tomorrow to determine whether can physically be on his own. Isn't it amazing that he is walking one day after brain surgery??? I'm going back to tuck him in and I'll give another update sometime tomorrow. Thanks again for all your comments, I'm bringing some to him to read tonight.
Have a good night,


  1. Julie-

    Melissa and I aer so happy and relieved that Scott is doing so well. Scott and your entire family have been in our prayers since we found out Scott's diagnosis earlier this week. We know you have a thousand offers but please if there is anything at all we can do for you and Scott please do not hesitate to ask. I cannot wait to shake my friend's hand.

    Your friends,

    Eric, Melissa and James Hughes

    Be careful; with this type of progress, Scott will begin eating everything in sight !!! Great news, Lucie and I were fully confident that all would go well. Keep up the great love and support.
    Tell Scott I have a new bottle of Wild Turkey and, when he's ready we can take a few samples. Let us know when we can visit. Best Regards and Positive thoughts, Andrew & Lucie

  11. Set small reasonable daily goals. Walking on Saturday. By Wednesday you should be tap dancing in the Barbershop Quartet outfit. Seriously, keep up the good work. Thrilled with the progress so far.

    Love, Kate & Michael

    Thank you, Jesus!
    What a great way to start the day-with the news that Scott is out of bed and hassling the nurses! In no time at all, he'll be home and playing with his family. I'm sure that Paige and JJ can't wait!

    hugs, kisses, and rabbits,
    love, abbi

    What amazing progress! Julie and Scott, you all have been in my prayers all week, especially Friday when I thought of little else. This blog has been an awesome way to keep us posted, not knowing what is going on is always the hardest part. Thank you and keep up the good work Scott. Prayers and good vibes will continue to come your way!
    PS and remember my offer of help is always there!
