Cary Stephens Can't Post

Cary had a stroke last Wed 1/13 and we are asking for prayers from everyone. He's in the PCU amd can't speak or use his left arm. He has asked for no visitors but you can leave hime a voice mail on his cell phone. He listens to them every evening. When he is moved to the rehab facility he will be online. I will let you know when that is.
Thank you, Anni & Chip

Yup, Cary's coming home on Saturday! He's making progress with his speech and left arm, but he's getting there, slow and steady.
Feel free to call or come by after a week or so.
NO BEER YET PLEASE! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE...
Can't wait to get him home...and back in the sky or at least at a dropzone....

We need to set-up Cary with a hanging harness and horizontal trainer in the garage so he can keep current on his Emergency Procedures and Body Position! Wink

If no one else has then you are going to be the first. That way you will get a low number. When you are ready Ill go base.

Re: [rapter] Cary Stephens [In reply to] Can't Post

hi Cary,
interested in seeing if you made it back to jumping? I had 3 heart attacks and a quad-bypass and started again after 4-5 months and still jumping 15months on.
I KNOW it's not the same but interested in your progress.
