Update on Father Keith
Pat Centner took Fr. Keith to his first rehab appointment last Thursday morning, February 16th. They were both relieved and encouraged Fr. Keith is in the right place for his concussion therapy.  It was obvious to both of them that these folks are well versed in rehab for concussions. Fr. Keith’s vision and sound sensitivities are the primary concern and he began his initial therapy.  

He has to “retrain” his eyes ability to focus and then to process thoughts from visual images without setting off headache pain. There isn’t any way to determine how quickly he can regain these functions however the therapy is the key to regaining them.  

Fr.Keith is eternally grateful to each and every person for your prayers and gracious cards as he continues this healing journey. Please continue to keep him in your prayers. Contact the Parish Office for any needs and we will make sure you receive the necessary assistance.
