"Hi All,"said Dianna Babington. "Just a quick and over due update on Kevin.
"He has maintained his breathing and the tracheotomy tube has been capped for several days and there has even been mention of removal in a few weeks.
"As his diaphragm strengthens his ability to cough increases and once that’s in place .... good-bye tracheotomy.
"He’s been using equipment in the rehab center such as specialized bikes that stimulate his muscles into motion which has really helped fight the muscle atrophy associated with these injuries.
"I am happy to say his voice is stronger, and he has put back some of the lost weight and is making progress in that area.
"We are starting to design his wheelchair.
"Wondering about 4-wheel drive with two big wheels for sandy areas .... but imagine we might just need a husky service dog to put him out of sand lol
"I’m going to the Christopher Reeves Foundation dinner Monday to learn about new technology coming.
"Excited to look forward," said Dianna. "The past is behind us."
