Hi Everyone!!! David is a student at UW-Madison. Well not actually but he has a student ID and is attending Adaptive Fitness Classes on Fridays at UW. He also went in yesterday for driver evaluation. We will be having to take him for more driving lessons and getting the vehicle adapted for him. His goal is to drive by his birthday in March. He has gained much strength back in his right shoulder and arm which were injured while he was at the rehab center. So that is great. We were able to put in an asphalt pathway in the yard for him to get around easier at home. We also had an automatic door put in on the house so he has a remote to control that and the garage door. So things have definitely progressed in one year!!! Oh yes...his FES exercise bike is a blessing. When he is hooked up to that it is great to see the smile on his face when he sees his own legs moving with the motor and electrical stimulation!!
Thanks everyone for your help to achieve these items. Without you all of this would not have been possible!!!

Hello!! David has started his therapy at St. Marys Dean in Janesville. He is working on healing a pressure sore on his left achilles area. The new wheelchair is working out pretty good. There is a new apparatus in the van that he drives up into and it locks his wheelchair in so that we do not have to strap him in anymore. He has survived his first cold...ugh! There will be a benefit dinner, auction Saturday June 10th in Evansville with a band and we would love to see everyone!! It runs from 5-?pm It will be at the Red Barn. There will also be a raffle.
