Brainstorming Session for Visiting Schedule
Several of you have asked if there would be a way to set up a schedule to know when folks are visiting Mike so we can spread out the love over days and times. This is a wonderful idea. Of course, we can always use the blog to just write in comments saying, "I'll visit him on such and such afternoon or lunchtime, or dinner" for other folks to get a sense of who's coming when, but that's not particularly user friendly.
Can any of you techno-geeks (said with love) think of a way to have a publicly accessible spreadsheet that everyone can see and enter info into? I figure the rows would have each date and the column headings would have times of day: lunch, afternoon, dinner, and after dinner. People could simply enter their names when they think they'll be visiting. He doesn't need someone at every slot of every day (in fact, that would be total overload) but it would help others to know if there are days when no one has a visit planned so we can distribute the love a bit more.
PS: (added late Tues morning) If you haven't read the comments below, please do. Josh provides a fantastic summary of Mike's memory issues, what is happening in the brain, and possibilities for healing. For those who are like, "Who the hell is this smarty pants?" Josh has a Ph.D. in psychology and is in ComedySportz with us. Awesome summary, Dr. Rubenstein. So good to have smart people in our circle of friends.
