March 11, 2010 Third Post
















Well I think I have finally figured out how to get photos off my camera and on the page with the help from the IT guys!
I have included views from my room of the Paralympic Village and of course my massage table & the challenge coin I received for volunteering at the games.
Today was a very busy day with not only treating athletes but participating in the flag raising ceremony for the United States. It was alot of fun to be with them while they are being recognized and they are happy to have you with them because they truly do appreciate our service to them. On more than one occasion since being here with these athletes they have expressed that appreciation to me. Totally incredible, like I have mentioned before... they didn't know me prior to the games.
Another exciting bit of news is I found out today who will be our flag bearer for the Opening Ceremonies.. Heath Calhoun... , the former Army Ranger turned paralympian who I have been treating... what an awesome guy! ~~he is very inspiring, to say the least... they all are.
I am extremely excited about walking & participating in the Opening Ceremonies tomorrow night, I know I will have a hard time trying not to cry.. this is truly a dream come true!!!!!
Days are long here, however they are busy and exciting all at the same time and nothing is ever the same... it's all about the flexibility and knowing how to get the job done as a team and representing the greatest country on earth!! GO TEAM USA!!!!
I will post new photos' in a few days ~~ stay tuned!

  1. Wow, I am so happy for you! It must be amazing to wake up as you every morning right now. It's really a privilege to help anyone with the work you do, but as you know...it's a completely different atmosphere with the Paralympians. I can see you smiling and I am smiling with you! I love you.
