    Well,Tim has made it a long ways. He is now able to get around on his own and is eating on his own now too! He is still in rehab but can leave and go home for up to 12 hours at a time. He got to go to his sons college baseball game today. Should hopefully be home next week. We will be having a benefit dinner for him this weekend so hopefully he will make it to that as well.

    Thanks for the update ,I was wondering how it was going with Tim.
    It's great to see things are getting better but, it takes time to recover from injuries that severe ,time he has now because he survived.
    Pass this along: Keep up the fight Tim we are rooting for you :)

    First time coming on this post and reading through I have to say wow what a fighter!. Glad to see he is making the recovery and glad to see the tree didnt kill him! Its great he got to go see the ball game, it must make his resolve to recover even stronger. My grandfather was killed dropping a tree when I was 19. He never got to meet my wife which I met the next year and my kids have only heard stories of him. It will be great for Tim and the entire family to have him around to share in making more family memories!

    Good news, Sean. The human body is an amazing thing. It takes time though. Sounds like your buddy is on his way back.

    Good to hear he is coming along well. No doubt he still has a long row to hoe but at least he is moving again. We wish him the best.
