Updates

Things have been crazy around here, I have been busy with Wii's for Warriors and Dave has had lots of appointments along with PT/OT. Last Friday we drove down to Andrews AFB to see the guys at the EOD shop, thats how I got the pictures of the landmine. Then Saturday we went to a Military Order of the Purple Heart Christmas lunch. Saturday night we went out to dinner and Sunday we just laid low due to the freezing cold rain we always seem to have around here.

Dave got some great news on his halo, 2 rings may be coming off in February! And the whole thing might follow soon after!

From our snow 2 Saturdays ago:

Giving Back

Awhile back I mentioned that Dave has had tremendous sucess gaining his balance using the Nintendo Wii Fit. We have been talking about how we can do something to give back and have decided to start a charity called Wii's for Warriors. It would help the soldiers who are having issues with balance (amputees or TBI) and give them an opportunity to do Physical Therapy in their own home or hotel room. We are just in the beginning stages of planning this out, I am writing up a plan right now. We are also going to get the info off the Wii Dave uses that proves its success along with letters from Docs and therapists. We are hoping that Nintendo will be willing to give us the Wii's at cost to them and the rest would be funded thru private donations and a fund we are starting ourselves.

If anyone out there has any info on starting something like this up, please let me know!
