Friday, April 23

Hello everyone, I know I haven't been keeping the blog as up to date as my sister did, but I'll try harder. Today they put my driveway in, last week they drywalled in the living room. Tomorrow they will frame up my new bathroom and stomp the living room ceiling. A week ago today I got my permanent wheelchair, and am becoming much stronger at driving it. Also I'm weaning from the ventilator, today I went six hours off the ventilator. I have gained weight, as now I'm 141 pounds, almost to my before accident weight. After a long hard search we have finally purchased a van, only drawback is that it is in California.


  1. That is great! What does stomping the ceiling mean? So glad you got friends to help out with all that work. Bet it'll be feel good to get home again.

  2. Sounds like things are coming along really good. The van and your new wheels look great!!!Wishing you all the best. Keep up the good work and keep uping your hours off the ventilator. That's just amazing. Keeping you in prayer, thanks for the up dates. Jeanne Ritchie, Leslie Smith's mom
