Matts first blog

Ok, this is my first time writing on a blog. So after hitting the 5 week anniversary of shooting my own leg, I realize that there is nothing in this world that I will let slow down my recovery. My wounds are healing, but my foot still hurts. I haven't used a wheelchair in over a week. The only way I could have been as strong as I have been is because my wife has never stopped telling me to keep going and have faith. Kristen has been there the whole time, from when it happened till now. I refused to go into my first surgery until I was able to see my wife. While waiting, the chaplain looked at me and said "Must be a special girl" and I said "She is my wife. I need to see her." God has blessed me with an angel, and for some reason she loves a skinny,redneck army guy. People really don't know what they have until the hard times show them just how much another person can love them. On another note, still have NOT been fishing since all this happened. Kristen wants to go fishing and wants to take the dog. I also want to thank every one that prayed for me while I was in the hospital. It meant a lot to Kristen and I. It's hard to believe that all the stuff that happened 5 weeks ago actually happened.


  1. I don't know which of you is the lucky one. You both love each other so much, I'm so glad you two found each other. Hurry up and get back in shape so you can continue making your wife the happiest girl I know!

  2. Aw Jacki that was sweet! :) He still makes me happy even though he's crippled ;) haha
