Looking very good ... I can see the difference from the first video to the last. It was mostly in your face ... confidence!! Each time that level of confidence went up. More will come as you practice, practice and practice.

I know it is not necessary to say this ... but keep up the good work. It is paying off!!!

Donnie seeing these others videos brings so much joy, that ur plan is also coming together w Gods plan. The other videos seemed effortless. You're getting there. I know Terry is also encouraging you from the heavens above. Keep up the good work. And look forward to seeing more and more of these types of accomplishments that you are making. 🙏🏻👍🏻👏🏻🙌🏻

Donnie we should all take a page out of your journey to get back to riding your GW. The top of that page should be titled Never Give Up because you have showed us how to respond to adversities. Thanks for posting those very encouraging videos. Keep on doing what you've been doing to get those great results. (y)

The videos made me well up with pride for you Donnie, yes, what a milestone. Someone surely is listening, how can he not with all of us telling him the same thing. Absolutely the best 4th of July anyone could ask for. You’ve been through so much, and your on your way to reaching your goal of riding the wing again. Proud of you, no doubt about it.

Hello old friend. It’s been too long. Still thinking and praying for you, and it’s so good to see your smiling face. I know that recovering from a major health event can be slow and frustrating. I’m so glad to see your determination. Kyle

August thoughts and update

Seems like I’ve been in a foggy time warp … 20 months have gone by with so many stories left untold. My second adventure in life continues. It’s a blessing to get a second chance in life. Many of you know I rode a bicycle by myself in July .. first time since the stroke. Thank God … and thank each and everyone of you for your prayers and support. First thing I did when I got home was take the training wheels off of my bike and off I went down the road. In the coming months I’m hoping to be that much closer to getting the Wing out and try riding it.

Course, with every milestones completed there are new milestones or obstacles to replace them.....

- I’m riding the bicycle 6 1/2 miles daily about 6 times a week. It about 1 1/2 hours up and down fairly straight but slightly hilly roads.

- Try to get in 60 minutes of stretches and strength exercises.

- Trying to wear the braces for the right arm at least an hour a day now. No longer wearing leg brace support .. maybe beyond usefulness.

- Decided against the injections in right arm .. maybe revisit in winter.

- Focus is on right hand recovery as much as possible … squeeze, open
and closing.

I’m doing good with my Blood Pressure and it seems it is better that it has been in a long time. The lightheadedness has diminished some and I’m glad to see that. It means it will eventually become less and less relevant … My balance seems good … Although, I don’t see myself throwing a Goldwing down a curve road just yet .. but I’m sure I will .. eventually ;-)

I’m almost off all the anti-depressants! I stopping the last one next week. In fact, I’m closing in on getting back to the meds I was on before the stroke. Getting off of drugs you don’t need is a plus for me. I’m starting to take on life more and my confidence is returning … very slowly. It’s like that fog is starting to lift a little. It feels so good.

God is good.

Stay safe … but Ride!


Donnie ...

Donnie it's always great to read when you post especially this one where you've made multiple improvements and getting off some of the drugs that you were on. Very encouraging news and I'm sure that the next time you post things will be even better. Keep up the good fight.

Donnie, glad to hear that you're doing so well on the bike. I don't know if I could ride one that far in a day!! You are truly one amazing man. I'm glad that you're getting off some of those meds that may be holding you back a little and starting to take on more and more...albeit slowly. That's the best way to handle those meds. I look forward to seeing the video of you riding your Wing for the first time since this started and seing the huge smile that I'm sure will be on your face. Keep up the good work and the prayers and thoughts will continue to pour in for you.
