Life is rolling on! I can hardly believe it’s been 9 months. In some ways it feels like it was just yesterday and in other ways it feels like an eternity. My triceps continue to get stronger and though the progress is slow its still progress, but physical therapy continues to pay off. Some recent accomplishments include shaving my own face and drinking out of a pint glass. I have to use two hands to drink out of the pint glass, but let’s be honest most of us should anyways. Thanks to your amazing generosity I’ve purchased a standing frame that will help my bones not deteriorate.
Last, but certainly not least, I’m officially going to Project Walk and will start at the beginning of June. I’m very hopeful and excited about this. I know it will be challenging both physically and mentally, but I’m ready for a challenge! Check out what Project Walk is about at their web site.
I want to sincerely thank all of you for generosity both monetarily and time. I could not do this without your support. I’m truly blessed and I don’t say that flippantly!! I’ve been able to purchase a shower chair, standing frame, and I’ll be able to attend Project Walk due to your generosity.
Some upcoming needs are:
• A place to live in Carlsbad when I’m attending Project Walk. Rent could cost as much as $3000/month and Project Walk is using the bulk of the donations so far at a cost of $20,000 for 10 weeks.
• Hand controls for my van allowing me to drive, which will provide a huge step towards independence. The cost will be around $6000-8000.
• Care giving is an ongoing need.
Every little bit is a huge help and greatly appreciated
Thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings. I hope that you are well and enjoying life and those in it!
