His communication skills dropped another level late today. Earlier today he was pretty understandable, but we couldn't understand very much this evening. This kind of goes up and down, so it may come back up some. He is sleeping hard now.
He had a occupational therapist visit today and she showed a couple of tricks on moving him around. When he is in good form, I can help him get up and onto the stool without too much effort on my part (plenty on his part). When he is not feeling good, it is all I can do to get him up and down even with another person helping.
