This blog is a record of events in the life of Joseph Taggart and his family since his spinal cord injury while body surfing in Guatemala in January 2006.

Update--Friday, Jan 13, 2:00 p.m.

This is straight from Elizabeth (Joe's sister):

Joseph felt some tingling about 4 inches above his belly button and feels like he has a little more control of his lungs. Nothing is for certain, but this is a positive sign. Also, last night Tim said the doctors were amazed because Joseph was uncomfortable and was able to lift his head up off the pillow and readjust it. The doctors say with this type of injury that is usually not possible to do, especially this soon after surgery. Late last night he asked Tim to get him a blanket because his feet and legs felt cold. He cannot feel them or move them, but they felt cold. He is having a good attitude and is hopeful about his recovery. Mostly he is anxious to come home.
