Status Update and collections

According to Alan’s mom he’s been moved a few rooms down to room 15. She said “Here a downgrade is an upgrade as one of the nurses put it … We’ll take it.”

Collecting Photos

Just a reminder to send any photos you have of times with Jen and Alan to Matt Best, not just pictures of them but pictures of things they’d probably like to remember or events they were at.  Matt says he’s only received about 20 photos so far. His e-mail is listed here
