My life was changed forever in an instant on July 1st, 2020.
In a freak accident, I was thrown headfirst over the handlebars of my bike and suffered a life changing C3 complete spinal cord injury. I was immediately rushed to the hospital and then airlifted to Indianapolis.

Hello all and Happy New Years!
I hope that you are all doing well and would like, for the first time this year, to extend our gratitude once again to all of our helpers and friends without whom we'd never be able to do it. Linas has had his Baclofen pump for a little over a month now. It's not without its own issues, but thankfully it has done wonders to reduce his spasms. One of his biggest challenges was getting a good nights sleep; his spasms would often wake him in significant pain. The pump has practically eliminated this issue, which is extremely good news! We are continuing to try our best to overcome all of the challenges life keeps throwing at us, of which there are a wide variety. However, without all of you, we would not be able to do any of it at all. This Christmas, we were absolutely floored by the kindness and generosity shown to us in all of your letters and your gifts! We have encountered the wonderful problem of having too many thank you cards to write! Again, thank you all for all that you do; our gratitude cannot be expressed in words

Praying for continued progress and a miraculous complete recovery!!
July 1, 2021
Found out about your tragic accident just yesterday (6/30/2021), one year after the fact. Had no idea because for the past 14 months I have stayed mostly at home, with virtually no contact with the department. Read on-line about the steady progress you are making. It is very encouraging that you are gaining control and movement in your extremities, and have started working for a limited amount of time every day. Please don\'t hesitate to contact me (765 404 0065) if you need any help. We are wishing you a speedy recovery and return back to some normalcy. I know you are mentally and physically very tough. You will come out of this setback soon.
