Irene Hoaglin continues to make steady progress. She has exercises for balance and strengthening which she does daily. Her doctors continue to marvel at how well she is doing and at her positive outlook. Steve and Joanna Reno are settled in and have most of the boxes unpacked and put away in their Iowa City home. All of them are enjoying the Hawkeye games and wins so far! Irene watches and cheers the Hawkeyes on from home.
Steve and Joanna enjoy being so close to the stadium and tailgating with their children Shannon and her husband Eric Hanson and Erik Reno. Irene especially enjoys the visits from her grandchildren before or after the games.
