Thursday, December 31

Happy New Year! I don't know about anyone else, but I am looking forward to 2010. Great things are coming Bill's way. Today went very well. His goal time in the wheel chair was 4.5 hours but because of his therapy schedule and a stern talking-to, he sat in the chair for a little more than six hours. Yay Bill! He also got a portable
ventilator today so he was able to leave his room and do some of his physical therapy in the gym. I did not get much of a chance to ask him what he thought of that because he was exhausted by the late afternoon. He should sleep very well tonight!


  1. Great news! Happy New Year to you and Bill and Uncle John!

  2. I have been reading these posts since day 1 (thank Sarah!) and I am amazed at Bill's progress (go Bill!). It is amazing to see Bill 'up and around'!

    Keep the hard work, Bill! These days will serve you well as you create new and exciting designs in your mind for others in your predicament. I was particularly inspired by the story of the Shepherd Center and hope that, one day, we will all be reading about the triumph of the Beck's in this new journey.

    Happy new year to you Sarah and Bill, Stephen and Nancy. You are truly an amazing and awesome family.
