Coins & Bills, Canes & Beer Bongs

He figures different coins from one another by their size, contours and ridges.

Organizing paper currency in his wallet is done by folding $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills in different ways.

A walking stick finds obstacles in his path as he navigates hallways and rooms.

Wire and plates immobilize his jaw so a 'beer bong' device tapped into his stomach provides him nourishment.

He tells me the 'big doctor' (as he calls him) is telling everyone B will never see again.  

B says "I don't know about that".

I reply "We continue to hope until they know better or tell us otherwise". 

Strengthen your servant B, O God, to do what he has to do and bear what he has to bear; that, accepting your healing gifts through the skills of surgeons and nurses, therapists and aides, B may be restored to usefulness in your world with a thankful heart; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
