David’s Goals For 2014 and Some Thank-Yous

Happy Valentines Day!

David has been doing well. Last weekend David’s friend Sam took him up to Granite Gorge to visit with his friends at the mountain. Just before he left they asked him if there was anything they could do for him, and David said he would really like to go down the tubing park. Well, with the help of Dave Morin, Rusty, Sam and others, they took him up to the tubing park. Seven of them, including David, got into tubes and made a 7 person tubing train and YES David went tubing down the mountain. They all had a great time, laughing and yelling all the way down. THANK YOU GRANITE GORGE!

MARK THIS DATE DOWN: Tuesday, February the 25th, David will be skiing at Crotched Mountain Ski Area starting a 9:30 am. All are welcome to Join David as he spends the morning skiing the mountain. I will be there early to try and break my legs in. ( It has been a year and half since I have skied)

Tomorrow, Saturday, some of David’s cousins will be coming up to go tubing at Granite Gorge. Maybe we can get David in a tube and send him sliding down the mountain again. His cousins won the tubing passes to Granite Gorge at David’s 5K Fun Run last summer. Thank you again Granite Gorge.

The picture above was taken while David was on his tilt table. The tilt table is used to get David’s body used to being in the upright position. It also helps him build and maintain bone density. The table was donated to David a couple of years ago. We now have room to use it downstairs in our family room.

David has set the following goals for himself for 2014:
– Get on Snow! ( It looks like that is happening)
– Get out and thank people in person for their support (weather permitting)
– Get Stronger
– Graduate from High School
– Have his dad get his moneys worth out of the YMCA Membership
– Play Rock Band on the Drums. David is a Drummer.
– Go Zip Lining
– Finish his elevator
– Hike more and climb mountains
– Get a Der Ziesel
– Would like to get a vehicle so he can drive himself around! Drive to Mt. Washington and drive to the TOP!

Hey, before I sign off I would like to take a moment to thank all of our Sustaining Members. These are the people who have signed up to have donations automatically sent to David’s fund raising organization HopeHelpLive on a monthly basis. It is amazing how things can add up. Funds are being used to help offset medical expenses that insurance does not cover. David is also curently raising funds to get a conversion van he can drive. THANK YOU! It is greatly appreciated.

Time to move some snow …

Today remember to keep a smile on your face and love in your heart.

Thank you all and Happy Valentine’s Day!

David’s Dad Paul
