pacing marathon

Dan is on a pacing marathon so to speak. It started on Wed night with an overnight of 9 hours. Thursday we were gone all day, but Dan started pacing again at night and continued all the way through Saturday evening. He only stopped pacing each morning for 2-3 hours for a break. He also is drinking and eating while pacing, something that was difficult at first.

Mind you he does not have enough title volume to push the air through his mouth and nose, thus he has his cap off, and is not able to talk while pacing. This is expected to improve over time as his diaphragm continues to get stronger.

Thanks for your continued prayers in this wonderful blessing of "natural breathing" for Dan.

What a wonderful week... God is alive and performing miracles. Just some of them come in the form of wheelchairs.

Dan, that sounds like a freakin' amazing chair! The coolest thing Benji's chair does is have his name embroidered on the back. :-)Glad to hear things are going well for you, especially the pacing. Prayin' for ya from Hollywood...
