    Wow. A fine testament to the power of having a goal as well as the significance of having a strong family/support system. Roger, I know everyone is super proud of Brian, as they should be, but you and your wife deserve to be proud of your continued care, determination, and involvement, as well! My hat is off to your entire clan! Kudos!

    My wife Ann deserves the most credit for supporting Brian daily, she has been in Baltimore full time. I stay in Phoenix to work and take care of my mother who is 96. When Brian was injured our daughter dropped out of Bible college and came home to Phoenix to help take care of Brian. Since the accident she has helped whenever we needed her.

    Brian is applying for jobs and looking for residency programs where he can apply. Ann told me that he has submitted applications for 10 different jobs all across the country.

    Today he met with a dean from the medical school to discuss how much he will be required to pay for the two classes that he took this semester. Tuition for a full semester is $28,000 but hopefully the dean will be able to convince the finance people at the school that Brian doesn't owe for a full semester. Tomorrow Brian meets with his adviser to discuss potential preventive medicine residency programs.

    Everything is on track for graduation on Monday May 16. Ann and I fly to Baltimore on Wednesday. Family and friends start arriving Thursday evening. Everyone is going to stay at Brian's condo so it's going to be crowded. After graduation we're hosting a dinner at a restaurant close to the condo and later in the week we're going to New York City for two days to see some sights and a play.

    Brian is by himself in Baltimore at the moment. We talked to him this morning he's filling out job applications and looking a possible residency programs. If he decides that he's doing residency the visits and interviews could be so time consuming that he wouldn't be apply to work also. Right now everything is on the table but there will be a time when he will have to narrow the focus.

    One other development Brian got a dog, Betsy the Beagle. He loves the dog and we think it's great. When Brian called this morning he was out at the park with Betsy.

    I can't say for sure but often you need to have an online hosting service like drop box or image shack and then post a link to the image there.

    Congratulations! And thank you. As a recently paralyzed person reading this thread have me hope.
    Edit: looks like you got it!
