Jan 5th our first week of "real" Craig therapy

Getting into a full week of therapy has been a dream come true. After being on your back, for almost 5 months, getting into full therapy is great! We have had a week of Physical therapy, Occupational therapy, pool therapy, FES Bike, and the standing frame. Boy does it feel good to be upright!
All of this equipment is a great blessing in our lives right now. We are finding and exercising muscles that have been asleep for a few months now. It is going to be a lot of hard work but we are all up to the task.
We continue to be blessed by the miracles of the Lord, and thank each one of you who continue to fast and pray in our behalf. We feel of your strength each day and thank you for not forgetting us. We miss you and love you all!

Hi Josh, I peaked at you blog while I was on Becky Lewis's blog. It's been quite awhile since I've heard anything about you. I'm so excited for you to be in therapy.

Tell you mom and Dad hello from Cindy Geilmann in South Jordan.

Keep up the good work.
