I enjoyed being in Raleigh for about a week for the Hope to Walk golf event. There was a great turnout and I did not want to leave.
In the hospital when Dave McGee first mentioned wanting to put on some kind of an event, I never would thought it would be in its 3rd year and that it would be done so well. I cannot even put into words how thankful and lucky I am to have the support. I know I may not deserve it but at the same time, I do not know what I would do without it.
A nice little write up that was done on it here.
I am back in Atlanta and back to the routine of therapy and work. It was good to be back home in North Carolina to mix it up a bit.
A few days after Memorial Day I moved to the next protocol on my stim unit. In total there are 11 protocols and I just moved from 3 to 4. It is probably not until protocol 5 and 6 where I will start to see the most visible changes and improvements. I have felt like my leg muscles have gotten a tad bit bigger over the last couple of months and that was confirmed when we measured my legs against the baseline measurements we made at the beginning. My leg muscles have increased in size ¼ to ½ an inch. It is still very early, I have only been using the stim unit this year, but it is good to see some changes pretty early and I definitely expect a lot more muscle mass gain and praying and hoping it leads to return of function over the next few months.
Will continue to keep you posted.
Thank you all again so much for your support!

Thanks again for coming out for this year's Hope to Walk events last month. It was a great time & goes a long way in helping Brian keep up with his therapy. He looks great, by the way! His legs have gotten back so much muscle--they are big again!
The lovely Renee Sprink has posted the photos here. Simply look in the 2012 Hope to Walk gallery. They are all FREE to download (click the green arrow) & will be on her site until the end of August. Some would make GREAT Father's Day gifts as framed prints!
Thank you Renee for sharing your talents once again this year!
