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.

For some reason I put off updating the blog until now, after midnight. I might be a little delirious so stay with me here...

Today was a big day. Wesley was transferred from the hospital to the rehab center. He is officially healthy enough to begin his rehab. It is going to be tough, but worth it.

We waited until about 3:00 for the transfer. My mom and I packed up the room. The walls were completely covered with cards, posters, and pictures.The transfer went smoothly. Once we got to the new unit we didn't waste any time. The room is a bit bigger but most of the walls are covered. He will be able to get into some real clothes and ditch the hospital gown.

Wesley is doing well. He is ready to start physical therapy. I will try to get some pictures tomorrow so the update will be more exciting.


  1. To say rehab is exhausting would be an understatement. Wesley will have NEVER worked harder in his young life. They will push him to limits he didn't know he had. He will have days he might want to quit, but hang in there. It will get better... The family is part of the rehab. Pay close attention and ask questions. "Formal" rehab will only last a short time, but the rest of his life will continue to be a form of rehab as he progresses. He can and will build on what they teach him in rehab. His life will depend on it. They will probably repeat over and over again, "quality of life," which will get frustrating. Lots of things will be frustrating, but the glorious thing is that he is here to be frustrated! He still has so much of life to live and things to do. When he looks back on this experience it will be but a moment. God speed.

  2. Hello, Wesley!
    My boys came home from school today with green wristbands that say, "Team Wesley...Miracles Happen." They were excited about that! You have made quite an impression on so many, many people. I love the looks on my childrens faces when I give them a "Wesley Update." When I read the post that you were able to sit on the edge of your bed with very little assistance Wyatt smiled and said, "Cool!" Thank you for sharing your miracles with us! You are in our thoughts and prayers! We believe in you!!! The Goldings, Travis, Leah, Wyatt, Garrett, and Alyssa
