I finished my rehab in Colorado on May 11 and returned to Southern California on May 12. The transition has been...overwhelming. Being away from all of the comforts of the hospital and accessible facilities has been very interesting and challenging. I'm taking everything step-by-step, day-by-day. I have lots more to post/write, but don't really have the time/energy right now. So here are a couple things I want to get out.
My sisters and Ivette are throwing me welcome back parties. The first one is for friends and co-workers.
The second party is for family and other friends who don't want to meet at a bar downtown.
We have reached out to a bunch of people communicating the above, but I apologize if we have not reached out to you yet. You are definitely invited to participate, please just let Judy know if you are coming.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone again and personally saying "Thank you" to each of you who have kept me in your thoughts and prayers.
I love you all...
More posts coming soon...
And now for a few more photos.
My first acupuncture session.
Another acupuncture session with electrodes connected to the needles.
Riding the hand cycles. This is the paraplegic version of a bicycle. Hopefully I can get one!
Thank you so much Deloitte co-workers! I got an incredibly thoughtful package that included a PSP, games, books, DVDs and gift certificate.
I took my parents and Ivette out for a double-date. We went to the Nuggets-Lakers game in Denver. Lakers lost, but eh, both teams are out of the playoffs now anyways...
Ivette and I at the game.
I took Ivette on another date. We went to a John Legend concert and Corrine Bailey Rae opened for him. Great times...
Last but not least, I have developed a little more upper body strength ;)
