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.
