Eric continues to surprise us. It seems every day, he does something new on his road to recovery. This past Thursday evening, he walked almost half way around Gabriel Sq. in our neighborhood. His furthest distance at that time, and I thought it quite impressive. But Friday evening, he walked the whole square! It's .84 miles -- I measured it on my bike. Two weeks ago when we went to church, Eric was in a wheelchair. Today, with O2 tank slung over his shoulder, he not only walked from the parking lot into church, but, instead of taking the elevator up to fellowship hall, as I expected, he strode right up the stairs, all 21 of them! I can't wait to see what he does next.
