            First I’d like to apologize for not keeping up with the blog consistently.  I know a post is way over due.  I’ve started my outpatient therapy this past week and have been busy with therapy and working out.  I’ve been doing well with going to the gym and working out, keeping my strength up is important.  I finally got the picc line in my arm out yesterday.   This is the first time since my accident that I haven’t had anything attached to my body.   It’s honestly such a blessing and a relief.  Having the simple freedom of not being attached to anything gives me hope and reminds me to keep moving forward.  Moving ahead is all I can do.  Not dwelling on the past of what could have been but what is now.  I got in contact with a foundation about a grant for a bed to help with pain in my back while I sleep.  I have been blessed with the approval for the grant and should receive the bed this week.  It’s such a huge help; I cant express my gratitude enough.  Receiving this bed has opened my eyes even more to just how caring and loving people can be.  I went out to dinner last night to my old restaurant I worked at before my accident; Sliders bar and grill.  I went with my friends Ravin and John.  It was great to see all my old co-workers and friends there.  The restaurant made a fundraiser for me to help raise money for all my expenses.  I’m so blessed to have such an amazing support group that love me and want to help me.  Thank you again to everyone at sliders showing me love and support.  I would like to take this opportunity to than everyone who has been following my accident.  To all the prayers I’ve received and the genuine generosity of people out there who have thought about me and are praying for a full recovery.  I love you all.  I’m doing well and am determined to work as hard as possible to recover from this.  God has a plan and I’m anxious to see it unfold.  May God’s will be done through this.
