Saw Ed today. He is much improved.
We took him a picture from 30 years ago, of Ed, Kevin Sullivan, Dave Masella and me at a party.
Jackie and I could not remember where the party was or who it was for. Ed remembered BOTH.

Ed got moved back to rehab last week. He's on the 5th floor, 1200, room 22 now and is receiving rehab. I just talked to Vic this morning, he had talked to Debbie and Ed is status quo from last week which was so-so. He had been vomiting and they're trying to figure out the cause of it. He looked pretty good last Wednesday when I was up there. They were working on his speech again. He still has his sense of humor. I thought someone mentioned they had him standing up trying to use a walker which sounded encouraging. I'm not sure how much progress he had with that though. I think that's about all I've got for an update. I think tomorrow will mark 17 weeks. Substations, SCADA and the Standards Lab took up a collection and Vic Novello is arranging for their lawn to be taken care of with the collection. Any extra will be used for snow plowing.
One sad thing is Debbie had to retire Ed from RG&E so last Thursday was Ed's official last day as an employee. She had talked to Ed about it be is not sure if he remembers it. His long term memory still seems to be intact.
Thanks for inquiring about him. I know the family appreciates everyone's thoughts. Debbie has mentioned that several times.
