FRIDAY, JULY 11 (day 61)

Nothing major happened today. Just kidding….today was amazing!!

I don’t know what Eric’s deal is but he’s surprising us every day. I contacted a Reiki Master earlier this week and supposedly he’s sending Reiki to Eric from a distance. It gives me the chill thinking about it. Reiki works by allowing the body to relax enough to heal itself. As a gentle form of energy, it integrates and reconnects all levels of healing: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. This is important for all healing, but especially so for patients with brain injury. It could be that, or it could be straight up Eric’s determination and/or stubbornness.

ERIC WALKED TODAY. Yeah, that’s right. Eric took 8-10 steps while holding on to the sidebars. And after a well-deserved break, he did it again. His friends Scott and Jason were there too so they saw it. It wasn’t a dream…Eric took his first steps today. We all felt like he wanted to show his friends something. Guess what I did? Crying like crazy of course.



  1. ERIC MY BRO YOU ROCK!!! Between the love of your wife, family, friends and strangers who care, and the Scottish/Italian blood running through your body, you will be back to climbing rocks and living life to the fullest soon!!
