Help Brian be "Able'd" with Dignity
Thank you all for your encouragement and support, I may be able to retain some of the very little sanity I have! My whole family thanks you for that ;)
I am slowly responding to each email, text, phone call- I am information gathering. Silly me, thinking that the Public Health Agency in AZ would be open on a Friday- what is this CA Furlough Fridays?! Dang. Monday it is.
Have an outstanding weekend- get out- enjoy the beauty around you- love each other ;)
I fall down, I bruise ribs, I bleed all over, I get up, get some stitches (more often I use super glue, I'm sick of the ER) and I keep going because that's who I am. I have recently lost function (off and on) in my legs. So falls are well...a bit harder and bloodier.
I woke up this morning to find my wife had started a go fund me page because I am in need of much specialized wheelchair and a few other things. At first I was furious! but when I saw the tears in her eyes...I had not realized what an impact this has had on them. I cried also, so much for my ego.
I don't ask for help, nor do I consider my self disabled because I am far more able than many people I know.
I am sorry Maggie for being such a "tough guy" and putting so much stress on you. I love you more than you know!
To all of you that have donated or have taken the time to give us info or shared the page...much love and thank you. You all have renewed my faith in a species I often view as vile, warmongering and selfish. Perhaps there is hope for us! : )
I have so many people to thank already, for your overwhelmingly love and generous support, financially, emotionally and through the information and guidance that have been offered. Please bear with me if I haven't gotten back to you yet, our little one has had a high fever since last night and I am trying to manage everything. I will contact each of you- and so interested in talking with those of you who have offered DME info, etc...for all the "shares", donations, kind words and love- you guys are flipping amazing- and for the first time, since leaving all of of our friends and family in California to build a better quality of life in a more affordable state- I don't feel so alone. That, I cannot even begin to express my state of gratitude for. Love, Maggie
Brian, Maggie and Kaiya are a wonderful, loving and serving family deserving of support. We are fortunate to have Kaiya train at Southwest Judo Academy and both her parents are actively involved with our school. We stand with you as you continue to fight the good fight. God bless.
First off.... Everyone loves you guys. Second off, there isn't anything we wouldn't do for you all. Even from a distance. Please keep us informed and let us know whatever it is you need and it will be done. We are sending you a package so please text your address. In addition my good friend Christie is setting something up at her salon to help you guys out. Your needs will always be met. You helped me more than words can say at a time when I was lost and that means more to me than you will ever know. We love you all and we know you all will keep fighting. Cause that is what u do best. Xoxoxox Hug little miss from us. We still need to FaceTime too.
I know someone who is selling a motorized scooter, for a very good price. If you are interested, I can have them contact you or I can find out for you.
I am so sorry to hear about this. I will help in every way I can!!

( So,while I don't have much,come pay day I will gladly be contributing to such a worthy cause and to a great great man ! .....i will ALWAYS support those who have supported me...ALWAYS W2WAR FURY!!! and THANK YOU and Maggie both.
