We are so excited about a new therapy that Ryan started. It uses electrical stimulation to engage abdominal muscles, adding much-needed strength to his core. Even after just a week-and-a-half, the results are starting to show. It’s not so much in his stomach’s appearance yet, but he is clearly sitting taller in his chair. This will bring him comfort and take the stress off his back. I also notice his coughs are more powerful.
Here the thing you should know… this is possible because of you. We used your donations to buy it! I hope you see just how much you help my son. Not only in keeping him healthy and strong, but also in the new groundbreaking therapies for the brain injured. We are cutting edge… because you make it possible. You give me the resources to make a difference. Through me, you redefine how brain injury is treated.
The wonderful thing is this works with the RT-300 FES Leg/Arm Cycle (again, through your donations). In two weeks — after Ryan’s stomach muscles are “conditioned” — both components will be synchronized and used together; as a system. The abdominal muscles will support the extremities as he peddles!
I ‘ll definitely put out a video when he begins this!
Time is running short to get on our holiday card mailing list! This weekend is when they start going out. I want to thank the hundreds of people who already signed-up. It makes it so much more accurate and easier to manage.
I know I sound like a broken record. So, again, we are sending out cards this holiday season. We started this last year, but quickly realized we didn’t have addresses for everyone; like those who donated through PayPal, U.S. Mail, drop-offs, meals, or the Wish List, to name a few.
I know how humble everyone is, but if you didn’t get a card last year or helped Ryan through online contributions, would you please do this? It would mean a lot to me and my family to send you a card. If not for you, would you do it for us? It would be a huge time-saver. I know it’s not much compared to all you did, but it’s something we really want to do. My daughter, Kari, designed it and we’re excited to do this.
You know what? Even if you got one before, would you please fill out the form below… just to be safe?
Just click fill out the simple form below and click the “sign up” button. If you’re not sure if you’ve done this already, then do it again. It’ll simply overwrite (or update) what might already be there.[pdb_signup]
