will gadd launching from Mount Lady McDonald on the day of my accident. I launched a few minutes later. The weather conditions were perfect, as you can see.
you may find it hard to imagine how good I felt when this picture was taken on thursday at synaptic. After all, what is so special about sitting in a paraplegic’s wheelchair? Well, two things : firstly, has a higher level quadriplegic, to be able to sit in a chair where is no lateral support and not immediately fall out is a big accomplishment. Secondly, I found I was able to make it move forward by myself. True, only for a very short distance. Previously I had not dared imagine I might one day be strong enough to accomplish this.
The day after this strengthening exercise, my shoulder muscles are still complaining, but it’s a good kind of hurt.
Kiera/Andrew – Just wanted to let you know how great it is to get these progress reports about Stewart – sounds like he is making amazing progress, and this is SO hopeful! Just FYI (and can you pls. let Stewart know), I’ll be visiting in Calgary for a few days in mid-September (I live back in Ottawa now), I think about the 17th to 21st, and I’d love to drop in and see him. I’ll stay in touch with you guys and him about this, but in the meantime please give him a big hug from me, let him know he’s constantly in my thoughts, and keep the updates coming! See you soon, and best to you guys too, for standing by your dad and taking such good care of him…. Chris Haberl
