Good morning fella. Its 0848hrs on the 15th of May, Tamara is sleeping, i just put Callan back to sleep and now I finally got the chance to check out your website. Good job on the site and a fantastic story of inspiration if i've ever heard one. Like Dougy said, I also am one that takes everyday things for granted (however not nearly as much since my experience in Afghanistan) but live by what you had told me prior to your surgery, enjoy the little things and live life day to day. And that i do still. I am so grateful and proud to have you as a cousin and to be regarded as a brother. I am also thankful for the times that i was able to be there for you when times were tough, from taking the bus or train to Bathurst to visit with you in the hospital ( and spend the night on the floor like we were a couple of kids having a sleep over) to that crazy day you took me to the doctor to get my eye fixed and then i took you to Winnipeg for an overhaul ( well tamara drove because i could'nt see) . Up until they wheeled you through those big stainless steel doors, remember how positive i was about the whole thing? telling you not to worry because whomever was looking out over you had plans for you, and even still in the ICU and Step Down, when you were still worried whether you were going to make it or not, and at one point i remember saying " One day you will look back on this week and say that was one hell of a time." My point is for some reason even when it looked very bleak for you, i always knew that something was going to work out for, don't know if it was wishful thinking or something else. But there we were a few months ago, at around Christmas i believe, when we were looking back on your progress, looking back at those crazy couple of weeks, you did say " Man that was one hell of an experience." Its pretty cool if you think about it. And now here you are doing something that only most of us could ever dream of doing, living out one of your own dreams, setting it as a goal. Truely Inspirational my man, very inspirational indeed. So wherever you go and however high you climb, never forget the ones down below looking up at you, because they look up to you and care for you a great deal. Now with all that mooshy crap aside, i want to wish you and Uncle Paul good luck, a pleasent and wonderful adventure, and fair weather. A little rough stuff in there as well because i also would enjoy a bit of choppy water and high winds myself, just hoping that its moderate of course. Cheers fella.

Hello Carl,

Great site... quite an inspiring story. It`s people like you that allow people to believe that life can and will be better if you believe enough and if you want it bad enough. It`s people like you Carl that give people hope and inspiration. And it is people like you that make others stop and say ``I CAN do this``. You are an amazing little man Carl (well you will always be a little man to me) - and I can`t tell you enough how proud I am of you, and what an honor it is to be your family. I wish you and Uncle Paul a safe and exciting journey home - God speed little one. I love you.

Subject: Inspiration

I have had the pleasure of meeting Carl, He has the drive and determination of no other man I have ever known. As many healthy people in our society take their health and well being for granted Carl is taking his illness and turned it into a positive, a positive to show that life can go on and you can still do great things for oneself. I know his cousin Dean very well he does not treat Carl any differently because of his illness and I'm sure Carl does not want any sympathy. He has got another shot at life and he is taking advantage of the this and he inspires me because I too have taken alot of things for granted. Meeting Carl and listening to his story is inspiring if you ever have a chance to sit down and talk to him you will know why he is the way he is.
Carl I wish you a safe journey this summer, and my thoughts and prayers will be with you and you uncle every moment of your journry to the Altlantic Ocean!
