Andy is being moved to a regular room. If all goes as planned, this will be a 7-10 day stay before he leaves Walter Reed.
Andy smiled some today and even laughed a little at times. He's watched a movie or two and told his Dad that he wanted to watch Hogan's Heroes at bedtime. Andy has talked alot lately about all kinds of things, but especially about the future. Andy still seems undaunted by it.
He was visited by a 2-star General today. His Dad said that he could see Andy "slip back into his uniform" mentally when the general stepped in his room. He straightens his posture (to whatever degree he can), he gets his manners in place, his is all about the yes sir and no sir and he's tough as nails.
Andy is beginning to look better -- his lips have healed, his complexion is improving, and the color is returning to his face.
When Andy leaves Walter Reed, he has three units to choose from that are specially staffed and equipped to deal with spinal cord injuries in the Army. All three 30-bed units are located in Texas--Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. That's sure to put a smile on Texas-boy's face.
