Another Miracle...

OK...so there is TONS to say and tell...but it is WAY too late to try and explain more than this incredibly exciting news! Mike peddled a stationary bike. Yes...there's no mistaking...he peddled with his muscles and nothing else. He was using the muscles that he has been having return in which is his right and left hipflexers (the left hipflexer is one of his most recent muscle returns)...and a lot of his upper right leg! I don't even know how to explain it...but he did it...twice...twenty minutes a piece! It is a phenomenal feat! And we are both incredibly excited and humbled!

Horray!!
If I've learned anything in my 50 plus years (woops) it would be prayers are always answered in the way and time necessary for us to gather all the 'sandbags' we need to get to the Top! We are so happy for you all!
Love,
Aunt Beth and family

Mike,
I don’t think I have ever seen a more beautiful sight, than you riding your bike. I think your theme song should be, “I like to ride my Bicycle" By the way I am needing you to do a couple of errands for me if you could. Thanks Love you

I know that our situation really can not compare to yours in anyway. But when I am down thinking that we will never be home with all our family together. I think of you all and how much faith you have instilled in all of us and I know that we will make it. Love you guys. And we are very excited for your newest miracle. Wow that was alittle to deep for me!!
