Family...My first Wheels!

I finally had some time to upload some pictures and videos from the last several days!

Today was Brody and Jocelyn's first time to see Mike after the accident. Since Mike was in the ICU they weren't allowed to see him. The nurses said with all the bad viruses going around they could get really sick! So as you can imagine, after nearly two weeks, it was pretty exciting to be together as a family again!

Well Mike has made incredible strides in the last several days! Two of which have been sitting up and going for his first wheelchair ride! We were shocked that he was able to ride in a wheelchair today! But boy were we giddy...especially Mike! He probably rode around for 35 minutes...which was by far the very most he has been up since the beginning! It was pretty exciting! And well, I had a little too much fun with this video, but it was too exciting not to post!
Mike, I always knew you were "bad to the bone!" Love ya, Michelle

This is incredible. I can't believe that after only two weeks he is up and in a wheelchair. I guess it hasn't even been two weeks. You guys are amazing, and I still can't even imagine what you are going through. We love you guys

Cute pictures! That's great that you guys can spend some time together as a family now! I bet your kids couldn't wait to see daddy! That's awesome that Mike can use a wheelchair too! I bet it's so nice to get out of bed.

michelle i was so happy to talk to you today!! I really do think you are amazing and i am lucky to be your friend!! I cant believe how strong mike is pushing himself around that is awsome!! Remember to think positive and i know good things will come your way!! I love the saying "I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it!" I know you have a lot of support but remember i am always here for you if you wanna cry or laugh or just talk about nothing, or about motherhood!! I love you and will be calling and saying little prayers for you and mike..
