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.

This Week's Schedule - June 20th, 2011

Here is the schedule for this week:
   Monday :          BioFit in the morning.  5th IT and 3rd IV injections in the afternoon
   Tuesday :         BioFit in the morning.
   Wednesday :   BioFit in the morning.  6th IT injection in the afternoon.
   Thursday :        BioFit in the morning.
   Friday :             BioFit in the morning.  7th IT and 4th IV injections in the afternoon

Today’s update:

The first half of the BioFit physical therapy was stretching and abs.  For today’s workout Eric sat and got to have fun punching.  He put on boxing gloves and then had to keep his balance while going through a series of punches: both hands punching forward together, right hand punching to the left while holding the other arm out for balance, then switching to the left hand cross punches holding the right hand out, cross punches right – left – right – left, side jabs, then upper cut front punches.  Eric was very focused and had fun.

In the afternoon Eric went for his injections.  He had his 5th injection in the spine and 3rd IV injection with umbilical cord stem cells.  His last two injections next week will be with his bone marrow.  We are now back in the hotel room and Eric is laying down for a while before dinner, though luckily he has not experienced any headaches or extreme exhaustion that some patients feel after the injections.
