Today (four days ago) is Sgt. Woo's birthday! What a great day to be able to share some very encouraging news of progress, as well as a request for more help!
First, the awesome news. As you will remember, initially Sgt. Woo was only able to move a toe on one foot. There was significant swelling on the spine and surgery was needed to relieve some of the pressure in hopes that it would aid in his recovery.
Thankfully there has been some progress in his mobility. Yesterday, Wing was able to fully extend his right leg from the knee while sitting in his wheelchair. He was also able to grasp with one hand.
These are both positive signs for his overall recovery. He will continue to work with the amazing staff at Harborview for the next several weeks before hopefully being transferred to a rehabilitation / therapy facility.
Now for the request for continued help. The medical bills will continue to mount as he fights to recover. There will be countless months of ongoing therapy and expensive equipment will be required.
Every donation will assist Sgt. Woo and his family in providing for his care. Thank you so much for your continued generosity and prayers.
Wing's wife told me yesterday that the prayers have made such a difference for them. They are eternally grateful for each and every one of you. You truly have made a difference.
