A new post from me...can you believe it?!?

Well its Monday night and time to update my blog to let everyone in on my daily life since my accident. I really appreciate everyone following this blog and to be honest I had NO IDEA how many people were reading my blog. Everyone I talk to tells me that they have been following my progress on the blog. I feel bad that I do not post as often as I probably should. I will try to do a better job of keeping everyone informed, I guess I just never thought my life to be THAT interesting!
This week is going to be exciting because we are hoping to get my exercise equipment sent to the house. We are going to turn my apartment into a gym so if you want to come over you might be limited on places to sit. We can watch a Kevin Bacon movie but you will have to fight for the bowflex seat. haha! Once I get my equipment I will be working out everyday working those legs and arms and getting stronger! I need my legs to remember how to move so I can get back to walking! I am not going to settle for ANYTHING less than walking! Everyday I am going to work harder than ever to make this happen. I realize that there is only so much I can do and I have to put the rest in God's hands. So far my recovery has been NOTHING short of a miracle. I should not be alive let alone able to move my legs. We have to keep this miracle going by telling others about this accident and the work God has done so that one day I can walk again. Believe me when I say modern day medicine has exceeded its limits along time ago. All bets are off with my recovery and what I will be able to do (that was a quote from my doctor).
I also wanted to take this time to thank EVERYONE at West Orange my home church for there continued prayers on my behalf. I went there for the first time since coming home yesterday and was BLOWN away by the response I received. I felt like a celebrity with the line of people waiting to give me a hug! BUT I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! It was so great to see everyone and thank them for all they have done for me and my family. I have family all over the country/world actually! Everyone who prays for me and thinks of me I consider family. I would do ANYTHING for you and wish I could meet with everyone and thank them personally. My progress has NOTHING to do with me but with EVERYONE who constantly lifts me up. It is you who has made all this possible and I will never be able to repay everyone for your continued love and support for me.
P.S. I am limiting everyones comments to 2 per post. 3 comments is just excessive! HAHA Just Kidding KB!
