We love our visitors...

We have been blessed with so many people coming to see us!! I am so greatful to all those who have come and have been a huge support and encouragement!!

(My Uncle Joe and Aunt Sharon...just a few weeks ago!)

(pool time and the exercise ball)

(My sister Anne, bro-in-law Peter and Larsen)

(more fun therapy times!)

I wish you all could have seen this wheelchair ride that Peter took Ben on! It was classic! Peter just took ahold of the handle and took off! I thought Ben was going to have a hard grip on his handles but instead he had the smirkiest grin on his face every time I saw him come around!! I asked Ben how he felt after and he said good! I then asked him why he felt good and he said, "that was the best ever!"

(these photos don't do his reaction justice!)

(my family and our new friend Joe M!)

(and of course me and Larsen! love him!)

W O W!!!!!!! What fun!! It looked like Ben was trying his best to dunk Peter. Did he make it?!?!! I am so glad your family have been able to come and see you so much. I love the race Pete took Ben on. Blessings to you, Marion

That video of Peter pushing Ben made me cry! What a beautiful family God has blessed you with! Continuing to pray every day for you both.

Wow, so inspiring, Ben is coming a long way and before you know it he will be the same man that you married! God is so good and faithful to perform miracles which I know your faith is strong and it's a long and hard battle! You are a blessing Katie to stand by him like this. May God continue to give you strength to stand by him through this difficult journey! I believe that one day he will stand up and give a testimony of what you and he went through. You both will and are touching lives and I believe many will come to the Lord through this!
