pancakes in between! The Frito family did a great slow-cooked

cover dinner expenses came out way ahead and were donated
to the EK III fund.
the last several years, folks have commented on how Eddie
seemed more animated and responsive than in previous years.
The same was noted this year. He clearly was responding to
stories with bright eyes and big belly laughs. As Ann was
leaving Saturday night, she thanked each of us, and told us
how important this annual run is to Eddie.

Ann reports that Eddie has been speaking a word or two on occasion.
Everything is prompted, and mere repetition, nothing in the way
of what you'd call communication. But it's the first *I've* known
him to even attempt uttering a word! Ann has had Eddie receiving
hyperbaric O2 Treatments for a while now. She Attributes the recent
attempts at speech as well as other incremental improvements to
this. - TL
