Dad has been moved to the Minnesota Masonic Home in Bloomington. Room 311, they are going to continue therapy for the next round. He seems to be doing about the same as previous so maybe the Masonic home can help him. He welcomes all visitors and calls. His phone is his cell number 612-791-0444. Address is 11501 Masonic Home Dr. Bloomington, MN 55437. Rm 311.
