Kyle's Recovery Expenses
Please help us as we raise money to pay for Kyle's medical expenses after his accident.
Using the funds which have been donated to Kyle he has been able to purchase his leg braces and wheelchair which cost nearly $4000.00. His wheel chair came in today and he was very happy with the chair. It is lightweight, portable and very comfortable. Kyle will be spending a lot of his day in the chair as walking around tires him out quickly.
In the weeks to come we will be setting up new doctors and physical therapist in Ocala Florida. We hope Kyle will be able to attend school there in the fall.
Thank you to everyone!
We work hard to make sure our children succeed in life. At times it can be a real struggle. I am so proud that our son Kyle was able to graduate with his class Thursday night. During the weeks after his car accident we weren’t even sure Kyle would be able to graduate let alone attend the ceremonies. Kyle defied all the odds. He was determined to be there with his friends. Just prior to receiving his diploma he was recognized by the Superintendent and received a standing ovation from everyone in the Civic Center. We are very bless, attached is a short video of Kyle’s night.
This week has been tuff. They continue to challenge his abilities and he invites everything they can throw his way. He has been moving and exercising muscles which have been impacted by the spinal injury. I think the week’s highlight was seeing Kyle as he walked up and down stairs with the use of a crutch and the railing. Another highlight was having his staples removed from his back. He couldn’t wait to get those out.
In this next week coming Kyle will make us proud once again when he rolls across the stage at the Portland Civic Center and receives his high school diploma from Massabesic High School. Go Kyle!
Attached to this update is a short video of the week’s highlights.

It’s now been a week since Kyle entered New England Rehabilitation Center of Portland. His progress continues to improve. His attitude is strong and determined. He continues to vow he will walk again. Kyle’s daily activities in rehab include four hours of physical therapy. His therapy is based around retraining his brain and leg muscles to work together again. In addition they are focusing on strengthening his muscles and teaching him to adapt to everyday life after his accident. Things like putting pants, shoes and socks are easy for most of us. Kyle needs to learn new ways of getting himself dressed. They are providing him with tools and techniques to accomplish these tasks.
Kyle is still expected to be in rehab for approximately three more weeks depending on his level of rehabilitation. Once he leaves, he will continue outpatient care. It is thought that around the three month mark we will know what the long lasting extent of his injury will be. Having said that, the doctors say his progress will still continue long after that.
Kyle is expecting to graduate with his high school class on June 12th and as long as he is able to leave the hospital to travel to graduation he will be there. His graduation is sure to be very emotional and his mother and father are very proud of him.
