Moving News

In the near future (when the pancreas and lung issues have been 100% resolved), Andy will be moving to the Veterans Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center at the James Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa, Florida. This is an intensive rehab program that is designed especially for soldiers with spinal cord injuries. This intensive lasts for approximately 4 to 6 weeks and will be the opening volley of Andy's rehab. Following his stint in Tampa, it's likely he will move to Dallas for the long-haul rehab.

Daniel and Andy put a great deal of thought, prayer and research into this decision and are confident that this is the best place for Andy. He's "ready to go to work".

My heart and prayers go out for Andy and your family. My name is La Donna Rieger, and I live in Bullard, well Teaselville. Wayne Tompkins brought Andy before our Sunday School class for prayers. I have a brother who is in his third tour to Iraq, and with many prayers, he will be home in December. I have my heart and soul invested in our soldiers as I have lost a dear friend and have had one severely and permanently injured while serving. Just know that he is one of the guys that I dearly treasure for what he has done for me and my family. La Donna (ladonnarieger@aol.com)
