Last week, Alison was here to get our nutrition program started again.  Alison did an awesome job and lots of great questions were answered.  We’re off to a great start!

Nutrition is critical for all of us living with MS.  Alison will be with us each month for the remainder of 2022.  Great job Alison and thank you!  I feel like we’re in good hands with you leading us on this journey 😊

Electrical stimulation – Laura Davis from Neufit in Texas will be here with us tomorrow to give demos on what the Neubie will do for us living with MS.  The willingness to try this is overwhelming.  Laura will be with us from 8:00am to 2:30 or so.  Due to Wendy’s progress with this technology the past four years and the amount of interest, we chose to invest in a Neubie machine and will have one here for us to help people after Laura demos the device and technology tomorrow.

It was really important to Laura that she gets to demo this on anyone that wants to experience it.  I’ve attached a schedule of everyone that signed up ahead of time.  For those who don’t get to experience it tomorrow, you will get opportunities to use it after some of us get trained on how to use it.  We’ll learn a lot tomorrow.

 MS Just Keep Caring – Our Caregivers support will be Friday from 10:00 – 10:30.  If you’re a caregiver of someone you love with MS, please join us and share your experience of caring for your loved one.

Rose Bud got to come along with John last week.  They sure have a special bond with each other.  Beautiful!

Tee’d Off At MS Golf Outing Friday, June 10th.  We’re getting closer!  A huge THANK YOU goes out to all who are helping plan and contributing to this event.  I feel it’s going to be an awesome and memorable experience in so many ways.

We still need items, services or events to raffle or auction off.  If you know of any individuals, businesses or services who are willing to donate raffle items or silent auction items to the golf outing please let us know and bring any item to the gym with its accompanying value.  There will be donor golf outing information flyers available at the gym that you can use when asking for donations.  We’ll need all items in by June 1.

 Bike Fitting
Our bike fitting is coming along well.  If you haven’t been fit for a trike or a bike yet for our Friday morning rides, let’s get that done this week.  If you’re going to wear clip in shoes, please bring your shoes to the gym so we can get your bike set up for you.  We will be doing our best to have the same person riding the same bike each week this year.  Hopefully, we’ll be able to get them hooked up and get riding a little more swiftly every Friday morning.

Friday Morning Bike Rides
Again…I was hoping to be able to start our Friday morning bike rides this Friday.  Our low limit for temperature is 45 degrees.  It looks like this Friday morning will only be 41 degrees and a 70% chance for rain.  As much as I’d like to get started, I really want it to be a good experience for everyone.  Let’s wait another week and see what the weather is like next week.  If it’s nice when we’re at the gym, we can take some practice rides through the industrial park.

COVID  We’ve all been dealing with this long enough and are very well educated on it by now.  Let’s make good choices and be safe.

Please stay home if you have any symptoms or know you’ve been exposed to someone with the virus.  Please don’t come until your symptoms go away.  Let’s also give each other some space when talking to one another and continue wiping the machines down before and after you use them with disinfectant.  Again…let’s be socially responsible and stay safe!

Let’s get together!
We’ll be getting together again from 9:00am – noon on Wednesday and Friday mornings at the gym.  I hope you’ll join us!

Tai Massage with Ricky Heldt  Ricky will be here Wednesday and Friday again this week doing Tai Massage.  Ricky says he is comfortable to work with you even if you’re not wearing a mask.  Ricky will continue to wear one to protect you.

Many continue making great progress with chronic pain relief, range of motion, walking better and a new sense of hope when Ricky works with them.  Please keep in mind that consistency is key.  Not only with Ricky…with exercise too.  We need consistency to realize the benefits long term.  We want you to have long term relief.

Ricky has a sign up sheet based on first come first serve.  You can pick the time slot that works for you.  I highly encourage you to take advantage of Ricky’s Tai Massages each day and sign up for your time slot as soon as you get there.

Reiki with Linda  Linda will be here on Fridays doing Reiki.  Many people say Linda’s Reiki work is “magical”.  We’re thankful for Linda offering her gifts and talents to us.

Feel free to let Linda know you’d like to do Reiki with her.  She also has a sign up sheet.

Prayer Group  We’ll be having our prayer group Wednesday @ 11:00am.
I just love the way we share, pray together and witness prayers being answered weekly.  Thanks goes to God and to everyone that joins us.  Let’sget together to share, listen, talk, give thanks and pray however God leads us.

We’ll be having our inspirational humor zoom call with Adam again next Tuesday.  Adam is a gift to all of us.  Please join us if you can.

I encourage you to share a smile and encouragement with someone.  Perhaps you could call someone that you haven’t talked with for a while just to say hi and see how they’re doing.  We all could use a little extra love and encouragement.

MS is tough.  Let’s have faith, remain calm, be flexible, help each other and learn as much as we can about the challenges of each day as we make good choices.

Let’s keep moving and smiling 😊

In God We Trust…we’re in good hands

P.S.  This past week has been cloudy and wet.  I still found a little beauty in some flowers.

The clouds we finally started to break at sunset tonight.  A little more of God’s beauty
