Miracles continue
The physical therapist was here yesterday and asked me what I wanted to do?
I told him I would really like to get in the truck if I could

So we walked up the hill to the shed with just the cane. I I stepped up on the running board of the truck and plopped myself down in the seat, therapist said he was surprised I did it so easily, so I got in and out a few times to prove it was not a fluke before walking back down the hill to the house. Then last evening I took a ride in the truck down to visit the neihbors had a good visit. next step is to actually drive the truck 8) It is all amazing that 2 weeks ago I was wheelchair bound 8)

See Ya,
Mike
Always good to hear good news! as for my hood ducting,it came with it .all I did was cut the hole for the breather. but have a look at it. ideas come from everywhere. maybe the other valve cover could be used underneath the breathers,upsidedown to meet the top one/scoop?

I guess I missed the 1 at the beginning :oops: So not super cheap I will have to look at some others
Glad you are building strength and stamina! Keep that positive attitude, every day is a new day :wink:

Hold your britches on the scoop for now. Something may be coming down the line soon.

Good to see you back in the hunt Mike!
I used an Unlimited Products fiberglass tear drop hood scoop and front bumper on my Falcon. Both were pretty nice as received.
They make a ton of different style hood scoops http://up22.com/scoopw1.htm

Drove the truck down to the mailbox and back. did not end the drive in the ditch, so I count that a success 8) No trouble hoisting myself up in there or sliding out when I was done :lol: Getting very close to driving someplace. dont think my wife is ready for me to go out solo yet :roll:
Going to make a Comet video to post up during the gathering, is there anything in particular you guys want to see? I have one request to cover the air ride more in depth so I might do that one.

Well right now I still havent gotten a battery to start it, one of the therapist wants to buy the GEO Tracker so I told him Iwould sell it really cheap I think my wife was ready to give it to him. I told him $300 he said he was going to offer $500 for it, maybe I will sell it to him for $400. he wants to build a hunting rig out of it. that woukld give me enough to buy a ventless battery. need to measure the space. but i have heard Optima is not what it used to be :? So maybe one of it's competitors? Anyone have a different choice?
Not really a place to do a seriuos burnout I have mostly gravel and probably not wise to get on the highway on Memorial day weekend :roll: and I am not too much into possibly breaking something and wearing my tires out, it happens but not planned.
My wife is off work Monday so going to go out and try t get the car off the jack stands, while she can get in and hold the brake so it wont roll off the ramps as I lower it and run over me :shock: hope fully I can get down low enough to slide the jack up under the rear diff. to lift it enough to drop those jack stands out may sit the car down on the dollies so I can move it around the shed.
See Ya Mike

Didn't see the latest Facebook update on here from Lori that she posted about Mike:

Just an update, Miracle Mike continues on his journey - doing well, has started a second round of chemo with absolutely no side effects from it. He graduated from physical therapy this week after completing all his goals, including easily navigating our flight of stairs in the house. He will continue with some speech therapy to work on the higher cognitive skill re-building and memory function. This weekend he will begin work again on his 64' Comet, sanding and prepping for it to be painted. Bought a TENS unit to help with that left arm numbness and he already seems to notice improvement with using it. He is going to visit Bethel Church in Strafford, where we used to attend, to deliver a testimony and message this Sunday to our friends and former pastor there. I am in awe of what God is doing and thankful to have Mike home with me as we are enjoying the summer. We are walking together around the outside of house for exercise and he is regularly driving the cart around. We have an eye appointment set up because there is still some vision impairment on the left side which needs checked out. God is delivering on his promises to my husband and I get to watch these miracles unfold before me. He is good. Very good.
