What a great experience this has been to see Jeff in action at Project Walk!  And what an amazing facility it is- I know that we have chosen the BEST for his journey back to mobility.
The staff and trainers are amazing people- every single one of them is not only dedicated, but so compassionate, patient, and above all encouraging. It is a happy place.  Everyone- whether client or staff is wearing a smile and it makes one feel good just to be in such an atmosphere.

Jeff's progress is phenomenal!  His trainers are so amazed at how hard he works and are seeing a great improvement over his motor skills from when he first arrived 2 weeks ago.  It is often excruciating just to watch, especially the stretches they put his stiff limbs through- but after, he always smiles, gives them a high 5, and says "That feels wonderful"!  He is now able to do the transfers from his wheelchair to a sofa and to some of the equipment on his own!

Next week Tiffany takes the "trainer" training along with him so that they can continue doing what they have learned after returning home.  We will puchase some home equipment for him, and when he feels  that he is ready for the next stage, he will return to Carlsbad for another session of
rehabilitation.

After the things I have seen over the past 3 days, I know more than ever that those of us who can
walk, go where we wish to go, and do whatever we wish to do, should give thanks every day for the blessing of a strong functioning body.
