Starting my blog...

I am a relatively technically savvy person, but this is my first blog ever. The first two posts below are the e-mails I sent out previously.


Again, I cannot thank you all enough for the support, cards and gifts. Things are still very crazy around here as those who have visited can attest to with therapy from 8am to 4pm daily with droves of doctors, nurses and others stopping by after that.

My physical status is relatively the same, with no movement from the stomach down and impaired sensation. A little sensation has returned in my stomach area, but so far, it is minimal. I am still very patient, taking each day as it comes and thanking God that I am alive with such great people around me.

I cannot wait to write about all of my experiences here from playing competitive wheelchair games with friends, family and other patients to scuba diving at a local scuba school. However, with the limited free time I have and the energy that I have left after expending it during a long day of therapy, I will keep up with updates as much as possible and include pictures.

But for now, know that I am doing well and staying positive and accepting life’s challenges and moving on. There is no point in moping or being sad about what is going on, as that is simply a waste of energy. I am focusing my energy on coping with my current situation and getting ready to live a normal life again.

My tentative discharge date has been set to May 11. I should be returning to Southern California around this time. I will not return before this, but if I show motor improvements, it is possible that I will stay in Colorado for longer as they will keep me here as long as I show improvement and there is additional aid that they can provide.

That is all for now. As I said, I will try my best to post pictures and updates. Feel free to pass this site on to anyone that I may have missed.

Lots of love…

Hey, Joe... just came back from Dallas today. There was a Tornado watch in TX yesterday (and it did kill 6 people in South TX). So, I was watching this Tornado warning/watch thing on TV, and thinking of the Hurrican watch we experienced last year in Miami, when we had to evacuate from Conrad.

Keep up the rehab... you and I will hit the South Beach again this year!

Oh, BTW, Bruins playing Irish again this year, but in Rose Bowl. We will get you guys this time. :-)
