The things of this world aren’t going to matter when we pass. What kind of car we drove or what job we had none of these things are going with us when we leave earth. All that really matters is our character. Through this accident I’ve learned this. It has helped open my eyes to a lot of things. Through this journey and the physical things I’ve lost has helped me focus on what is more important. I feel God has taken away certain blessings to redirect my focus on greater endeavors. I’ve started working on the Ekso more frequently. I have taken more than 320 steps the last time I used the suit. It is getting easier the more I use it. I have also started swimming more. At first it was a lot harder than I anticipated. Swimming freestyle was a challenge but just like anything the more I do it the better I become. I really enjoy being in the pool. It gives me an opportunity to be buoyant and walk a bit. They have me doing therapy four days a week; which I enjoy and helps to keep me busy. I love working on my recovery any chance I get. I’m determined and focused. One day at a time I’m getting closer to my goal of walking again. I have looked into possibly getting stem cell injections. I’m still doing research and asking around. It excites me knowing that this could help my recovery process tremendously. This week I have a full schedule of therapy. Including the Ekso machine, muscle stimulating bike, the pool, and walking with long legged braces. Bring it on! I’m doing what ever it takes to reach my goal. Looking into this world of paraplegia and seeing just how many Americans are in wheel chairs and are handicap makes me realize that I want to help in anyway I can. By giving hope and reaching out to disabled people letting them know that we are ABLE and can achieve anything by putting our mind to it. We just do it differently. I ask for continued prayers for strength and sensation. God Bless!!
