Shawn vs Steel Recovery as of  2011/10/08

Report on Shawn's Recovery

♦ Sunday, 2011 October 2, on the twelfth anniversary of the accident in which Shawn met Steel, Shawn jumped a few inches off of the ground a fair number of times during a celebratory church service at Harvest Family Church.

♦And, at the start of the singing in said celebratory service, Shawn pseudo-jogged (ie "gimped":) fairly quickly (:to him:) around the inside of the church a couple of times (in the Pentecostal tradition of "running around the church").

- Note that this was done despite many doctor's prognoses twelve years ago that Shawn would never walk again, or be able to take care of himself, and so on. Furthermore, Shawn was even proscribed never to jump or even pseudo-jog again within six years of that Sunday's miraculous showings. -

What it takes: See the Stellar Assistance Providers list on the homepage for an idea of some of the people, organizations, and Power that have gone into this cool recovery so far.
