Sorry for not posting...

I am sorry it has been so long since we last posted. With the speed that everything is going, I didn't realize it had been so long.
Thursday he continued with therapy. He tied us all in a word association game. I tried my best, but only ended up doing as well as he did. One of the therapists gave him a list of checks to write, deposits to be made and register to balance. The drill is supposed to take up to an hour. Cory did it in about 10 minutes! Another talked about the dimensions of a hole that was dug, handed Cory paper and asked him how much dirt was removed. He looked at her and said 8 cubic feet without writing a thing!
He still has some trouble remembering what certain items/objects are called, but seems to remember after you tell him. He also has some trouble with his short term memory, but that seems to be getting better as well. His voice is weak, but is not hoarse or raspy at all.
One of the doctors remarked that he had never had a patient recover from a traumatic brain injury this fast. While it has seemed like forever, we do realize that it is barely over six weeks since he was hurt, and he is recovering so well.
Cory was discharged from rehab on Friday morning. He was able to go to his zone conference meeting. The smiles in the room on all of the missionaries faces were heartwarming as they watched Elder Fife walk in, sit down, and prepare to be instructed.
We have traveled back to Utah and were able to attend church yesterday.
Cory's recovery has been nothing short of miraculous. To any that doubt God's hand in our lives, I testify that he knows each and every one of us, love us and cares about us.
