Two Steps Forward…One Step Back

Lots of progress since I last posted. I am eating “real” food. I am in a power wheelchair that I control with my mouth. And I no longer have a neck collar. I have had lots of visitors and I get to see my brother and my grandkids this weekend. I am still overwhelmed by the support and encouragement from all my family and friends. Thank you for all the cards that I have received since I have been here at Kessler. I remain upbeat and positive and will continue to fight the good fight. Scud

  4. Scud I’m thrilled to hear about your amazing progress, and better yet straight from you. You are always on my mind, and I’ve been hoping and praying for you this entire time. With your amazing charisma no doubt you’re teaching everyone else a thing or two!! Keep up the good work. I want to come visit you in a few weeks with Sharon and Philip. We’ll get that coordinated.

    Hi Margaret. You amaze me just the same. You are one outstanding lady, and Scud is truly a very fortunate man to have you. I think about you, too, and wish the best to your entire family. I really enjoy reading the updates.

    Keep shining!

  5. Way to go!!! Two minus one is still PLUS ONE!! (okay – that is the math teacher in me) which means you are going in the POSITIVE direction! We check each day for any news and think about you all the time. We know your time with the grandkids this weekend will be a real boost to your spirit. Keep up the great work – we are praying each day that your steps forward are bigger and more numerous than any steps back. Take care!!!!

  6. Great to hear!! You have been in my prayers. I love your perseverance!! You still sound like the guy I remember. Best wishes to you on your progress. You can and you will!! God bless. -Allyson (Babcock) Jurmu 🙂

  7. I’m a friend of Flectcher’s and a fellow cyclist. We’ve never met, but I’ve heard lots of stories. Just wanted to wish you well and say stay strong and positive!

  8. Way to go, Scott! Two steps forward and one back is about the best that most of us can achieve on a regular basis. Sorry you’ve had to join the world of mere mortals!

    Thinking of you and Margret every day and checking regularly for news of your latest accomplishments 🙂

  9. Sounds like two steps forward and NONE back. And great to see you posting with your ipad. I finally got to ride Richmond trails this weekend. Nice trails!
    I miss you. Keep up the good work and enjoy the grandkids.

    Your Friday Rescue Team has your back still. Not a duty day goes by without discussion about how thankful we were for your support. We added a second EMT, but sure miss you. Keep on truckin’.
