Shane ventured out today with new terrain. In his morning physical therapy he learned how to get into the drivers seat of a car, dismantle his wheelchair and stow it in the car, and ready himself to drive (there are special controls in place that enable one to operate a vehicle solely by hand controls). She told him that she has never seen somebody do it any quicker. In his afternoon session his therapist placed supports on his ankles and legs which kept them straight and with her support and those of parallel bars he was able to stand for several minutes. This was huge and something that is normally attempted during out-patient therapy once released from the hospital. Shane was pretty stoked about his accomplishment.

The reassessment from the insurance company affecting his discharge date will be done tomorrow; we are hoping they honor the initial projected date set by the hospital when he was initially admitted which is December 6th. When I left him tonight his 2 friends met me in the parking lot as they were going to visit. I witnessed over the last couple of months and learned by the response and actions of so many what it truly means to be a friend; I am not sure there is a higher role somebody can play in this life. I have so much to learn; thank you for showing me what it’s all about; we are deeply indebted to you; and again, thank you!

  1. So good to hear! Shane really has done an amazing job….We continue to pray as he works toward his goals. Friendship is a powerful bond, the explination is simple…”To have a friend you need to be a friend” Sounds to me the Mosko’s have that lesson learned. Love to you all….
