Thanks for all the calls and emails. Joe is working through the day to day struggle with post surgery and adapting to life's changes that accompany an accident of this magnitude. Joe survived an injury of epic proportions and is tending to the most important things in life first, his family. He is recovering slowly and his positive attitude is admirable to say the least.
I have just returned from weeks of therapy and too am adapting to the abrupt change of a broken back and its life style changes.
My injuries are far less extensive than Joe's and they say full recovery is possible. I am slowly returning to work and we will both be up to speed asap. We are very sorry for any delayed responses from us as we both incurred injuries unexpectedly and simultaneously.
Thanks again, Dave.
Dave has been severely hurt and been in rehab with doctors optimistic in saying this healing program will bring him back to work 100%. We are very sorry for this past few months as most of you know Joe broke his back (much higher degree of fracture and surgery) has too been hard to reach as he recovers. We are slowly but surely getting back to pace and hope you all can bear with this delay as it is going to be over soon. Our level 1 kits are available and many new products are on the way. Please keep checking in, we will be back stronger than ever.
