IM ABLE duathalon Something to marvel about: In September 2012, Bill was just starting his rehab, barely able to do a wrist curl with a 2-pound weight. On a beautiful, sunny, Sunday, September 8th, he participated in the IM ABLE Foundation duathalon and biked approximately 10 miles with a hand-crank bike! Check out the website www.imablefoundation.org for pictures.
Thank you to Carpenter Technology for sponsoring a fund-raiser for adaptive equipment or a hand bike. Thanks to Billy and Gretchen Kaag for making a great team and THANKS TO ALL for cheering Bill on!

Update - September 2013 Since Bill arrived home in October of 2012 he has gained remarkable strength, continues with therapy, had plastic surgery on his heels (which are now healed!). We have made modifications to our home - THANK YOU to all involved with the project! Also, in May of 2013, he returned to work on a part-time basis! A wonderful accomplishment. Showing more endurance - hurrah! Next on the list, returning to driving and modifying a car. We are very grateful to all who have helped us along the journey. As we reflect on all the people who have helped, we can't thank you all enough.
