Lubbock sculptor Glenna Goodacre is still hospitalized in Colorado, following a head injury in March, but she is making great progress in her recovery, especially following a surgical procedure to install a shunt last month.
Goodacre is doing so well, that her husband, Mike Schmidt, decided to take her on her first big outing. They went to see her famous son-in-law perform at a concert in Denver last week.
Harry Connick Jr. is married to Goodacre's daughter, Jill. Schmidt says Glenna was just thrilled to see him in concert. Connick knows Glenna likes "the Boogie Woogie," and Schmidt says she tapped her foot as he played.
Schmidt also hosted many of Glenna's caregivers at the concert, and that has given Glenna plenty to talk with them about during her continuing rehabilitation.
According to Schmidt, his wife has made great progress since her surgery. In fact, some might say this concert was just what the doctor ordered.
