Update on Wayne Garrett from his wife Sarah 03/07/18…
Wayne’s working hard every day he doesn’t like to take a day off . The glider has become his new best friend he says he does not know how he managed before with out it. Every week his strength in his core and legs is improving and using the glider he feels is helping with the blood circulation into his legs and he can feel a real difference when he uses it. His balance has improved so much in the last year and his awareness of where his legs are now is improving. He’s been working with a physio also and has a little control now of both his knees with little bits of movement and is working on on that to keep it going.
We are so pleased with his progress and amazing attitude and work ethic.
Wayne Garrett multi time Ulster and Irish mx1 and mx2 motocross champion. Represented Ireland at the mx of nations and at under 21 level also. Wayne started racing at 7 year old and has been racing for 24 years coming through the youth ranks winning championships in Ireland and finishing a best 4th in the British youth championship. On 24th July Wayne had an accident while competing in the Irish championship in Athlone, unfortunately he broke T3 in his back broke numerous ribs and sternum he had to have 2 operations to stabilise his back.
Wayne spent 7 weeks in the Mator hospital in Dublin and just over 3 in the Royal hospital Belfast. Wayne is happy to have been moved to musgrave hospital Belfast for rehabilitation. He is getting stuck into the Physio giving it 110% as always. So far he tells me it’s not tough enough for him too relaxed for what he usually does in the gym. He has got the hang of the bed to chair transfers pretty quickly and the Physio says he will be doing it on his own in the next few days. Within the first few weeks Wayne has got to grips with with chair and is getting shown how to wheelie it already. Wayne will continue to push his body and abilities in anyway that he can to progress his outcome. To help support his cause and his long journey ahead, please donate here to his cause directly.
