Update & More Pics from Frankie's Froedert Hospital Visit

I'm so happy to tell you I received a note from Leisa, whose sweet, nice Dad I visited a few weeks ago at Froedert hospital (he was there after suffering a 2nd stroke within 3-months).
Here is what she had to say:

"The day after Frankie sat in my Dad's lap at Froedert Hospital, and licked his hand on the side that he had no feeling/movement, he began to get some feeling/movement back.

He is mostly able to clean/dress himself, and walks with a one handed walker and minimum assistance. He is getting stronger every day, and his will for recovery is amazing. Your visit meant so much to my Dad and I. Your mom is a wonderful, caring woman, and you, Frankie are a "blessing on wheels"!

Awwww, shucks... just being me and so happy I could bring your Dad a smile! Thanks for sharing with us, Leisa. Please tell your Dad Arf-a-roo and to keep on rolling!!
