  • Brent Jackson,

    I am very pleased to hear that it went well for you. Hope that wall's a bit lower than it used to be.

    Thanks, Brent. I've got a lot to do before I can say I'm anywhere near where I want to be but I feel like I might have a shot at getting there now.

    Thanks, Sacha. It was hellish to go through but it's amazing how quickly the memory fades and we adjust.

    Go Chelle! In a way you're a new person with new opportunities now. You're bound to be a bit self conscious. But now you can think about what else you really want to do and set about doing it. We've (my daughter and I) really enjoyed being involved with wheelchair rugby for the past 18 months or so, that might not be your thing, but I've yet to meet any wheelchair user who's tried it and not had fun.

    Wheelchair rugby is cool to watch. A bit full on for me though. I'm not really into team sports either.
