I was finally able to visit Jeff and Tiffany and Madden in their lovely new "wheelchair accessible" home in Lethbridge. Tiffany has done an admirable job of decorating, and they are most comfortable.  There is a lift which Jeff can control himself to move from main floor to the basement. He had a huge workout table built and has gathered new equipment- an arm bike, the Vigorfit (or "rack" as I call it), and a stationary bike.  He starts with a warm-up on the arm bike each day and has built amazing upper body strength through dedicated repetitions.

(You will notice too, the 2 very tiny family pets- Stuey (sp??) and Poppy who are in the center of the action every day)
 
I was able to take a few photos, and some video, but apologize for the amateur efforts on my new camera. Nevertheless, I am posting them below so that you can see his miraculous progress.  To think that 2 years ago he was unable to do any of these moves, and to see what determination and dedication and hard work can do is truly a miracle. Click on the captions for more details.
 
Jeff plans to return to Project Walk in California early next year and spend a few months this time- which will bring him along even further than he has come to date.

Many thanks again to the generous folks who have contributed to make this training and rehabilitation possible!  It is changing the lives of Jeff and his family.
