Found this on Facebook


Lord of power and might,
whose mercy is everlasting,
guard and guide those who
place their lives in the balance
to ensure the safety of those nearby.

Look with favor upon those with
the prowess and skill to disarm
explosive devices, render them safe,
and remove from others the threat of harm.

Bless those who have been set apart
by this hazardous duty, and give support to
their families and loved ones
who wait through each tense call.

Receive into eternal rest those
who have given their lives
and bring healing to those who mourn.
Grant that in the EOD Family
there may be unity of spirit
for the well being of all.
To your glory with grateful hearts
we thank you loving God.

Occupational Therapy

Dave has been doing great in PT and OT, these pictures show how he can stand on his own for a few minutes and move his body around. This is difficult because his balance is off, but he is working hard. He has also been playing Wii Fit in OT to get balance back. If anyone wants to know what to get him for Christmas.......

Dave walked with crutches yesterday, unfortunately I didn't get any pictures. He did a lap around on his walker then on crutches.

Well no ball for us.....yesterday I had to call an ambulance to come pick Dave up and take him to the ER. He is going thru withdrawals due to a med change. Today is a little better, but I don't think we will be doing much this weekend....

Solo Ridin'

Today was a great day!  Dave did some great things at PT and OT, weightlifting and balancing.  We left after PT to go grab stuff for his dress uniform.  We are going to the Red Cross Fire and Ice Ball next Sat, Dave will be wearing his sevice dress uniform.  We had to add a couple more ribbons (5 full rows) and get his new rank sewn on the jacket.  Still trying to figure out how he will put his pants on (and keep them on)

Then we drove around town to Legal Seafood and had an early dinner and then some shopping, got a few goodies but no dress for me!  So will have to continue the search this weekend!

It was really good to get Dave out all day, he needs this distraction so he doesn't get so focused on the pain just sitting around in bed.  He did great getting in the front seat of the car, and its much easier on me with the new lighter wheelchair.  We will be getting around much more now!

Yesterday at Amputee Clinic, the docs changed his meds around, and we are really hopefull that this is going to work out better for us.  Just after talking to them makes me hopeful.

Tomorrow will another fun day for Dave, he will be golfing on this:
