Most know me as
A little over three years ago I was getting ready for a date...at least that's what I think I was doing. I remember getting showered and dressed ready to go somewhere. I also remember getting on the computer after getting ready. The next thing I remember I was waking up with lots of lights flashing around me...it was blinding. It was raining. Someone spoke to me and said, "Mr.Thomas, don't try and move, your neck is broken." For some reason it didn't really hit me...not from denial, I don't know why. The same person spoke to me again, he asked me "Is there anyone we should call?" I gave them my ex's phone number…(to be continued).
I'm a C4/C5 quadriplegic (incomplete).This means I could have limited progress up to potentially walking one day. If you're interested,check out the video below. I stay in the moment and don't concentrate on the walking. Instead, I appreciate the small improvements that God gives me each day.

Hey everybody, how are liking this wonderful weather? Man that gloom was about to kill me. Anyway, glad to see some sun. All this time on my website and I haven't taken the time to introduce the most intricate part of my recovery, my health and general well being. Her name is Kayla. She is such a great person. I got lucky, she is so much like me sometimes you would think she was my daughter. I could sit here and go on and on. I describe her as my aid but she is so much more. She is my nurse, personal assistant, office manager, driver, etc. She is what makes my life a life Monday through Friday. I don't know what I would do without her. Isn't she adorable.
In the beginning I joined facebook as an outlet, but over time I have realized that it was not the best outlet for me. After a while it even became overwhelming, because once I befriended one person, then another one that they knew, then another one that they knew, so on and so forth. I had so many friends; I did not even know where to begin. I have wanted to write a book of my life for some time now. I have had 5 or 6 people tell me I should do so. I guess I would think “Who the hell wants to hear my story!” That’s a good thing though, that means my ego is in check. So, I started building a website.
Please be patient, I am just learning. There is so much I want to write right now but I don't have time. By the end of the month I should be up and running and have begun the first part of my story. I will update my profile on facebook to let everyone know. For all of you who know me, please pass my website along to any of our friends and anyone who you think might be interested. Please sign my Guestbook to let me know that you were here.
Thank you for all your support,
This site, for the most part, will be uplifting and fun. However, we all know that life can't always be that way. My life is a little precarious right now. During the Christmas holidays I found out my ex was seeing someone and wanted a new life. She has agreed to let me stay here and give me time to get situated. I've got one more arm surgery to go, then hopefully a few months after that, off to driving school. Surprisingly enough, it is very civil around here. Yes, of course, I was angry and resentful at first. But now I am at peace with it. I just want her to be happy. We have agreed to be friends.
In the meanwhile, I will be looking for a new place to stay over the next year. I am excited, it's going to be an adventure. Just like a small kid trying to learn how to do everything again. Thank you for all your support.
