Such wonderful news to hear how well Chad is doing. You are right when you say how great it is to see the small things coming back. That is a true sign of how their recovery is doing. Gary's sense of humor and joke telling has returned, but it took almost 5 years. Chad is a lot younger  and is coming back faster. How wonderful that his bowling is so good and he enjoys it. The year goes by so fast and a year ago you didn't know how you would get through the next day. Continues prayers for your family. I hope sometime this summer we can stop to see you. We are enjoying our winter in Arizona. After Gary's accident I didn't think we would get back here, but this is our 5th winter since his accident. Life goes on and we adjust to what we can do. Thanks for continuing to do updates.

I am so happy to hear Chad is doing so well!  He and I really beat the odds in our health issues.  His were way more then mine but both were really scary!  I can't tell you how thankful I  am to have a 2nd chance!  I am doing really good too and my doctors were also amazed how well I am without any deficits.  You & Rog can really count your blessing that you have Chad & I back.  We both make awesome couples!  Love you guys!

Happy Anniversary. So happy to hear Chad's healing is going so well. He has made a remarkable recovery from his injury.He still has healing to do. It's been 5 years for Gary and I still see some of the healing of his socializing and remembering jokes he knew years ago. We are in Arizona for the winter, never thought we would get back here. Have a very Merry Christmas and a safe New Year.

Thank you for the update, Jill.  You are such a generous and caring person to find the time to write and let others know about how things are going.  Chad seems to be making a very remarkable recovery!  I hope you are somehow finding time to take care of yourself as well as taking care of your family. Best wishes!
