We put out an invite for friends of Brad to join us for a Mother's Day afternoon gathering at the nursing home, and about ten people showed up bearing potato salad and steaks for a barbecue with Brad. Brad was in good form and pleased with the company. He was talkative - using many good words and appropriate responses - and he smiled a lot. He even enjoyed his very first post-stroke beer! It was a perfect day for a parking lot picnic, and Brad was still energized from having talked with his parents and brother in Ohio via Skype.
