Joe Haldeman had his first full physical therapy session on October 19, Gay Haldeman reported on SFF.net. He stood up from his wheelchair a couple of times and walked six small steps. “It was wonderful to see him standing and walking,” she wrote. On October 20 he had a longer PT session, standing and sitting. Plans are for Joe’s trach tube to be removed October 21.
Joe’s continued improvement is great news. I’m happy for both him and Gay, for whom I have no doubt this has been an extraordinarily trying time.
