This is good stuff

I thought about not posting these pictures because I did not want to bring anyone down but the reality of it is that this is good, this is progress. My brother (as well as the rest of us) have been waiting along time for him to get to this point. Today is his first full day in a wheelchair and he is still learning how to operate it. They have a street simulation on the roof to allow patience the opportunity to practice going up curbs, roll on uneven surfaces, get into a phone booth, etc.
We expect Raul to be home by Christmas. Thanks again for all your prayers and support.
I will be doing the Philadelphia Marathon this November 23rd in Raul's honor.
The page for that is here.

And what a lovely Christmas it will be too. Wishing the very best for Raul, and your whole family. Big congrats on what is surely a huge milestone for Raul. It just goes to show that in life- anything is possible. :-)

Bob thank you for keeping us informed.It is so good to see a smile on Raul's face. I hope to see him on Christmas. I know God has a purpose for him.

We are so glad things are progressing for Raul. Everyday is a miracle in itself. We will keep praying. Love, Max & Jessica
