I too remember your accident like it was yesterday.

I still have 2 bikes........but dont ride alot. I remember
reading daily about your progress and how they really didn't
have much hope at the time. Glad you are well.

Best of luck

Mike

Hey,Mike,I remember when you called me after my car wreck about 10 months after yours. Tho not nearly as serious as your accident,it was also a close call for me. You cheered me up and had good thoughts to keep my spirits up. I still remember exactly where I was sitting when you called and still remember everything you told me. Thanks for your support,it helped me when I saw things thru your experience. Take care,and if you ever pass thru Jasper,AL,please stop in and let me buy you dinner and some beers. Robert

No not really, my wifes sister mentioned that before. I would not have a clue on how to get started in that field anyway.

I'm not sure how much of a speech I would have since I basically sum it all up as, Mind over matter, life goes on with or with out you. You can either go down the depressed road or the make the best of it road. There is still a lot to be thankful and happy for and things to do in life with or with out a leg or arm or whatever. There is always someone worse off than you and better off than you. What road do you want to follow?
