Update from Main Street • July 29

A Quick update:

Still waiting on Shepherd Center. We heard from them a week ago. They are all filled up. No room for David at this time to get into a summer outpatient program. They will keep us posted week by week.

David finished his summer schooling. He is trying to catch-up on school work he missed while he was recovering. I promised him we would all go for a seafood dinner in Jaffrey if he got a B or higher in his summer English class. Should know soon.

David continues to go to PT. He really enjoys swimming in the therapy pool. Also continues to work out at home with his FES bike and arm weights.

Lost my red camera so I may be a little short on pictures for a while.

That is it for now.

Keep praying for David. We feel your love and caring.
David’s Dad, Paul

Update From Main Street • July 19

Quick update:
David continues to work at his manual wheelchair skills. Today, in PT, he was able to push himself 350 feet. This evening he continued his work out at home with arm weights. He is now up to twenty pounds with his left arm. He also spent an hour on the FES bike.

David is very determined to get strong!

Go Dave!

A Quick Update On David…

His Aunt Kathy and her husband Donny came up Sunday afternoon for a visit. They have not seen the new house so we took them with David out to see it.  David challenged himself to get down the hill in the back without tipping over his wheelchair. He did make it and was able to get into the basement for the first time to see what that looked like. We all had fun. David is liking the house.

Click here to see pictures.

Lots of work to be done on it. We need help with he following:

– Finding A person or company to sand and refinish the floors
– Recommendations on how to refinish stained, oak cabinets or finding a person
that does that. We would like to see more of the natural wood.
– We are already getting quotes on redoing the bathroom and possibly putting in
lifts, ramps and an elevator to the basement.

Any and and all suggestions appreciated

Thank You For Helping David Get His Van • July 10

David Update …

YES! He got his van last Tuesday, July the 3rd. This van will greatly increase David’s mobility and he is very excited. His first trip was down to his extended family in Granby, MA for the Fourth of July.

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Tom, his mother Bonnie and the rest of the Sambor Family. Tom’s dad also injured his neck a couple of years back and needed the use of a wheelchair accessible van. Unfortunately Tom’s dad passed away earlier this year.

The Sambor family learned about David through Facebook and decided to to pass along a lot of their dad’s equipment to David including: an FES Bike, ramps, lifts, E-stim kit and more. They also had a van which they passed on to us for the cost of the remaining payments left on  the loan. This was a huge savings over what the van would of sold for on the retail market. The funds to purchase the van came from many individual donations which we are very thankful for.

We thank the Sambor Family for their generosity, support and caring. I’m sure your dad/husband (also named Tom) was a very special person. We feel we have been touched by him through you and your family.

Thank You and God Bless,

David’s Dad Paul
