Update - January 31

From Chris's mother Jennifer: "A mere three weeks after the shooting incident Chris continues to improve. His kidneys and wounds are healing nicely. He participates in physical and occupational therapy and is beginning a school program. Children's hospital has many great activities to keep him occupied and he is greatly enjoying limited visits from school friends. His spirits are good. Chris really enjoys reading the many beautiful cards from everyone. He reads all the cards we bring. Though he does not realize the magnitude of the outpouring of thoughts and prayers and well wishes he is grateful for the outpouring.
Richard and I want to thank everyone who has sent words of encouragement or offers to help. The encouraging words keep us all going. We are so impressed with the various fund raising events and marches for peace. We want to thank Crocker parents and friends who are so very supportive at this time. We are returning calls as time allows and will get to everyone. We also want to thank the staff at Children's hospital. Everyone loves children and feels good to Chris, Richard and I."
