James is no longer in a wheelchair, but relies on a walker and is just now taking baby steps as he walks outside for the first time since being hit by COVID. James was diagnosed with COVID-19 in January and spent 90 days in the hospital and 60 days bedridden at home.

His very big dog, "Tank," is a big part of his healing. He waited for him by the door each day he was in the hospital and greeted him this weekend as he made his way from the curb to the front door.
