Hi. My name is Eric. This is my journey after being paralyzed in an off-road motorcycle accident on January 22, 2011. I suffered a fractured T12 resulting in a ASIA A Complete spinal cord injury. I have no sensation or motor function from my waist down and am in a wheelchair. My wife, two young daughters, family and friends have been supporting me in this journey.

Schedule for the Final Week - June 27, 2011

Here is the schedule for this week:
   Monday :          BioFit in the morning.  8th IT injection in the afternoon
   Tuesday :         BioFit in the morning.
   Wednesday :   BioFit in the morning.  1st IT & 1st IV of Bone Marrow stem cells in the afternoon.
   Thursday :        BioFit in the morning.
   Friday :             BioFit in the morning.  2nd IT & 2nd IV of Bone Marrow stem cells in the afternoon.
   Saturday :         Fly home !!!

Today’s update:

The BioFit therapy began with range of motion stretching for Eric’s legs.  The workout portion focused on balancing exercises from a sitting position.  This included catching a ball and holding a ball and moving it various ways without losing balance.  Eric did pretty well, though did occasionally lose his balance.  We got back to the hotel and only had 30 minutes until our pickup to go to the Stem Cell Institute.  

This was Eric’s final spinal cord injection with the umbilical cord stem cells.  Eric was done within 5 minutes and we spent most of our time waiting to be picked back up again.  Back at the hotel Tracy went to buy a Subway sandwich so we could eat and then Eric could lie down for a few hours.

  1. Hello Eric, my name is Steve Holbert. I used to be a Captain for Continental Airlines based in Houston. Up until I broke my back in a motocross accident just short of two years ago. I've been following along on your blog. Thanks for writing it! I'd really enjoy meeting with you, if and when you pass back through Houston. I can meet up with you after you pass through Immigration and Customs. Send me an email if you can.
