HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN
ANDREW GALLUP’S LIFE
Our 25-year-old friend, Andrew Gallup, was in a devastating motor vehicle accident on April 18, 2015. As he was riding his scooter home, a car coming from the opposite direction turned into Andrew’s path. Unfortunately, the driver who hit Andrew had very little insurance. Andrew was severely injured in the accident and suffered a severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). After more than three months in trauma centers and rehabilitation hospitals, he was air ambulanced back to his parent’s home in Olney, MD.

We don't make many entries here on Andrew's HelpHopeLive site. But we do a weekly update on his Caringbridge site if anyone would like to check on his progress. Please see: www.caringbridge.org/visit/andrewgallup.
Thank you for all the well wishes and contributions. They are appreciated!!

There is no news yet on the reinstatement of nursing. We continue to work hard on the application for a Medicaid Waiver that will get his nursing and nursing assistance turned back on. Until then we are holding our breath.
This past week Andrew had some good alertness with his speech therapist where he recited the days of the week loud enough and clear enough to be understood - so progress there. One of his PT/OT sessions was really good also - he stood in the power lifter and (with some assistance) took several steps. We will continue to work on leg strengthening and encourage this. I've attached a video of his speech or you can see it here: youtu.be
Prayers please for a positive outcome on his Brain Injury Waiver application.

God is with the Gallup Family. They are amazing in their care for Andrew, who is a beautiful child of God. It is a great to see Andrew and his family at church.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Andrew as the New Year approaches. Hopefully, 2017 will bring hope and improvement in Andrew's condition.
