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.

Thursday, January 12, 2006

Update--Thursday, Jan 12, 9:00 p.m.

Tim reports that Joseph has some feeling in his right arm between his shoulder and his elbow. This was not the case before surgery, so it is encouraging news. Joseph is also able to "flex" his left bicep, which is also encouraging news.

Today, Tim's boss at the Church office building had a conversation with Elder Scott. Elder Scott indicated that he had been thinking a great deal about Tim Taggart and had intended to call him or talk to him. When he learned of Joseph's accident and the subsequent events, he further indicated that he now knows why he had Tim on his mind. He asked to be notified when Joseph and Time were back in Salt Lake so that he could make contact and pay Joseph a visit.

The family feels strongly that the Lord is mindful of their needs and they feel comforted by that knowledge and by the faith and prayers of all of you.

i want you to know that i'm thinking of you and hope to see you soon. rocky and i were talking about you the other night when we were bringing in the tugs. it had been snowing that evening and the ramp was wet and slick. we were talking about how nice it would be if we had you there behind the wheel of a sports edition to come flying at us full speed only to power slide to a stop and give us a ride to pick up the tugs.
get better. let us know when you'll be up for a visit. can't wait to see you again, buddy.
