I had a pretty good day today. The weather was beautiful so it was nice to focus on the glory of that; praise God! I woke up bright an early as I do every morning since breakfast comes at seven-thirty sharp. They don’t let you sleep here. My Doctor came in this morning and I was discussing with him some of my questions and concerns. The whole team of Doctors and Therapist met up today to discuss my further plan of action. From a physical stand point I’m ready to go home but medically because of the stitches and drains they don’t want me going. I started my therapies with attempting some more car transfers they seem to be coming along quite nicely. My physical therapist Erin was able to raise the car up to imitate a higher vehicle since my Dad has the truck. I did a good job of transferring into the higher raised vehicle. Tomorrow my Dad is bringing the truck here to the hospital so I could practice getting into with my therapist. Through out the day I continued as normal working out then lunch, some more therapy then back to working out. I was able to get into a standing frame for about half an hour than my back started aching in pain. After therapy I was able to go outside for a little bit an catch some fresh air. Being cooped up in a hospital for as long as I have makes me try and get outside when ever possible. My sister came by tonight and brought chipolte for dinner, which was delicious. She has been one of my biggest supporters through this whole thing. I don’t know where I would be emotionally if it wasn’t for her love and support; always visiting me and keeping me positive. It’s so comforting to know that her and I are so close, that I could turn to her for anything.
I thank you all for all the love and support that I am shown on a daily basis. God is so good and has great things in store for those who love him. God Bless!

    I am reminded of a song that was popular “in the olden days” by the Hollies. I used to sing it when I was taking my brother to school when he had several broken limbs after falling out of a tree fort…..it’s called “he ain’t heavy…he’s my brother”. Google it….
    Have a great day and a very merry Christmas! Love, sandi

  5. Dear Shane,   Not sure you remember me from ECC, but we and the 4th and 5th Sunday School kids and AWANA club on Friday night continue to pray for you. I’ve been through a bit of a health struggle myself and your posts are encouraging. That is what the boby of Christ is about.  Wishing you and your family a blessed and Merry Christmas and many blessings in the New Year.  

    Respectfully,   Alexander Saris
