Forest Wagner's Letter to UAS
I hope this letter finds each of you well and enjoying summer.
Thanks for the kind words and support. I’ve received so many letters and packages and am really touched to be part of such a caring community. I am doing well and will be back at work this fall. I continue to go to physical therapy and doctors appmnts most days of the week, and am hiking and stretching everyday and walking without a cane. I am not in pain, and am able to drive around now, which makes the day-to-day more convenient. I have one remaining acute injury, a hole in my side that is slowly healing from the inside out. I cant rock climb yet, but am getting closer, and am now doing some longer alpine hikes. I will be in Anchorage another month to six weeks as an out patient, and will be moving into an apartment next week-- I’ll pass that address along when I get it.
Thank you for the donations. This still leaves me speechless, but helped to clear my mind about summer work, which at this point i am still unable to participate in. I am still processing how to respond, but thank you very much.
I am working on a brief write up of my incident and will pass that along when it is complete.
