Notes from Doug Hartman:

We are done for the day at Mayo again. We started the physical therapy they are recommending (different than normal), just trying to teach her brain to work when her body does not want to. Also strengthening the way she uses her body to walk and move.
She is off of all meds except the neurontin which they want her to take for the tingling in her whole body. They are still certain it is not MS, don’t know what it is for sure, but they are hoping with this therapy she will be more normal as far as the body goes.
They do this therapy with a lot of people that are not able to be diagnosed and have had a lot of success. We continue with the training tomorrow and are being told we should be able to come home Saturday. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

We are heading home tomorrow with the therapy sheets so Jody can do it back home. We thank you all for your prayers and support without which none of this would have been possible. We are so glad to be going home to our children who we have missed terribly. Also huge thanks to those who helped with the children while we were gone. Thanks again.
