FROM WILL COOPERlooks like daddy will be transferred to a rehabilitation facility in New Albany either on Thursday or Friday. Due to the complications from the knee replacement he has been unable to undergo physical therapy. He still is having kidney problems and will remain on dialysis at this time. We are still hopeful that his kidneys recover. We are so glad to be leaving the hospital…especially mama who has remained by his side throughout this entire ordeal. We are so thankful for the outpouring of prayers and support and ask that they continue as daddy moves through the rehab process. Thanks again!!!
