Here's the deal

On February 4, 2012 Wesley was in a skiing accident and broke his neck. He is 16 years old and is planning to graduate high school this year. There are not many 16 year old boys as amazing as he is. He is kind, thoughtful, and good date on his progress. I will make sure Wesley gets to read every comment this blog receives. My siblings and I will try to keep this blog current.

2.20.12 update

Today was a good day.

When I got to Wesley's room this morning I talked him into playing a game with me. It is called 'Spot It'. My Aunt Tondi sent it to Wes. We were laughing and making fun of anyone who was bad at it. I think we went through the deck of cards five or six times. It was fun to see Wes having a good time.

We also got to go over to the rehab unit at Barrow's. We saw the gyms that Wes will be working in and his room. The staff over there seem great. We felt very welcome and optimistic.

The admissions lady over there is going to come evaluate Wes tomorrow morning and finalize the transfer. We are so thrilled. Wesley is ready to start. He is determined to work hard and get results. The ladies over at Barrows told Wesley to be sure and get a lot of sleep before he enters rehab. They will start him out on 3 hours of physical therapy a day.

Just to give you something to look forward to... Wesley has mentioned he may want to tell me his version of the story to type and put up online. Be patient with him. It may be a while. He is an amazing boy and I love seeing him act like his old self.

I hope everyone is a great day!
