Ted's Fight to Recovery
As you may of heard, Ted was in a bicycle accident and is now at the Denver Health Medical Center with a severe spinal cord injury. With his current prognosis, Ted will have an extremely long recovery including extensive rehabilitation.
We would like to raise as much as possible to help Gia and Ted with Medical Bills, Living Expenses, and other unforseen costs. Anything can help and we thank you very much for your support!
So thought I should post on Ted Swetlik's progress to all of you that love us so much He remains vent dependent and trying to wean, also now doing cuff deflations for little blocks of time ,we have a voice, lip reading sucks!! Pneumonia is much better and he is physically better. He is out of bed and we can go outside( but at 100 degrees we are ok staying in) He started riding a bike again with electrical stimulation and will do that three times a week Started PT,OT and Speech 2 day here at Craig. This is REAL BOOT CAMP!!!Nice to see SOMETHING positive finally. Feel like I can take a deep breath again We got Buca up to see him today. ! She tried to climb IN the wheelchair with him!!!
Shit is getting real though and we have a tentative discharge date of October 6 Th. Holy s$&@!!! We hope to come back home. The view alone will heal him!

Gia, Renee and I are so sorry to hear about this unfortunate event. This LOVE is because for all these years you and Ted were always so giving to our VVMC family without every asking anything in return. Now its our turn to give back to you for all your years of kindness. See Ted through his recovery and get him home soon. Praying for he and you!
