Tell me who you are
On Monday I spoke to a physical therapy class at U Indy. They asked a lot of great questions and seemed very interested in my story. I'll be working with them again this coming Monday in small groups. I've really enjoyed talking to different groups of people about my experience. In some ways it's given me a way to make something positive out of something that could have been very negative. As time goes on I hope to do more to raise awareness of the needs of people with disabilities.
Since I don't have much to report on I thought I'd take a minute to ask about you. On the left of the blog page there is a site meter. This gives some interesting statistics about how many people are reading the blog and where they are from. I can figure out who some of you are just by looking at the city you're logging on from, but some of you are a mystery to me. I'm going to list the cities/regions that the last 100 visits came from. If you're willing please make a comment to let me know who you are, and which of these cities/regions you're from.
Los Angeles, Ca
Somewhere in the middle of the country (the map just says United States)
Saint Louis, Mo
South Bend, In
Fort Wayne, In
Brandy Station, Va
I know who some of you are but I'm really curious about the rest. Also, I'm pretty sure there's more than one person in most of these areas. Just click on the "comments" link below and let me know who you are. You don't even need to write a message, you could just say "Annie O'brien, United Kingdom". (Except use your name and location instead of Annie's info.)
If you want it narrowed down though, I'm in South East England, near the coast :)
I was going to say that I'm probaby the furthest away but I'm pretty sure Bombay beats the UK!
Love you, Mona & Bruce
I hope you have a good week ahead of you. Keep on blogging baby cakes, look forward to it every week. My pathetic way of keeping in touch with you, since I don't write or call you...sorry.
I do love you though,
My name is Elnora Coffin, and I'm probably one of the locations you're curious about, or at least aren't aware of! Mine are the hits from Plano, TX (which is a suburb just north of Dallas) although I grew up in Indy. My mom works for IPS and has worked w/your dad off & on for years, and she came down to visit me shortly after the accident, which is how I "know" you. I've not posted before since we haven't met, but check weekly for blog updates...your faith and positive outlook are a continual inspiration to me and I'm sure many, many others!
I too check weekly to see what is happening to Jeremy, but have never commented. As I think you know, we are both very inspired by your outlook following your horrible accident on October 22, 2005. As we are both in the health field and have seen "lots", you have been the best to watch! I know it has been hard, but you seem to always look forward instead of back. I think we all could learn from this attitude! Thank you, Jeremy, for all of your inspiration.

Central Ave (1 block over and .5 miles down from your parents)
North Church members
We know a nurse who was on duty when you arrived at Methodist.
We check this site weekly.
We pray for you daily.
We watch you in the halls and in the pews at North often.
Dan McCoy from Fort Wayne. I'm pretty sure you knew that, but thought I'd say hi anyways. Glad to read things are progressing nicely for you. We should actually talk sometime! It's been a while.
Love, Merrilinda and Skeets
I have known you since you were a skinny brillo pad-haired 7th grader. We were even "a couple" for a while so long ago...
I check in every week to see how you are doing until I can see you in person again...Xmas is coming up soon!
I feel like we are on an episode of the mickey mouse club.
duh-duh duh-duh duh-duh duh ....JEFF!
It's so cool that so many people from so many different places care about you!!
Love it - and love you even more!
Glad to hear things are going well for you at present. Don't work to hard!
Enjoy your blog every week and sometimes even take time to read the comments from other readers. You have so many people praying for you that it's no wonder you are doing so well! I know the progress will continue for you and look forward to your weekly blogs, no matter when they are posted.
It's Marie Fuehner..remember Karen,Linda, Marie, Mr G and the old gang. I must admit I don't check weekly but I am very interested in your progress and highly admire your courage. I now work for the CVB in Covington, Ky and live across the river in IN.
This is from your former tutors Janet and Sandy. We account for one of those inclusive Indy locations altho fishers is the location. Also a location from Venice FL is us also. We are sooooooooooooo proud of you. But then, we always knew you'd be the best even back in 4th grade. Love checking in on your progress.
