Densey Cole Blog

Officer Cole has a blog. It's only one post so far, but it's a letter from Densey himself. Here's a couple of paragraphs:
  • First of all, I wanted to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your prayers and concerns.

    The city has been phenomenal giving me access to the best health care possible.

    As of Monday afternoon my wife Mary will have a trust fund set up through the Federal Patrolmens Credit Union under my name. We are awaiting confirmation on an interview we will be doing with CNN on Tuesday evening on the accident, spinal cord injury and the impact on our family etc...

    We also plan to leave for a rehab facility in Denver CO, one of the best in the nation for spinal cord injury where my wife and I live together and rehabilitate and educate ourselves as a family. My children can visit and stay with us as often as they can for free for up to a month at a time, they encourage family/friend interaction as much as possible.

    My injury is an incomplete spinal cord injury so we are very hopeful. My progress is moving forward at a very rapid pace. I have been eating and drinking whatever I want I have moved my arm though very very exausting and flexed my bicept. I have feeling down to my toes. I get more and more sensations back everyday. The way my legs feel today are the way my arms felt a couple weeks ago. a lot of pain and burning sensations twitching etc. I have had very little physical therapy as of yet. This is still considered a very new injury. I still have a lot of swelling of the spinal cord. Until I begin therapy there is no way to tell, I aint givin up!
This is actually be a great way to keep people updated on Officer Cole's progress and rehab and a great way to send him well wishes, thoughts and prayers. We hope that Densey and Mary are able to update it, especially with the most generous gift from the 022 District guys and gals of a laptop computer.

Stop by and let him know you're thinking about him.

That was great to actually hear from him. I never knew him before but I feel as though we are now very closely associated and we always be. I feel almost as if I know his whole family since we were treated to his marriage, vicariously, through the blog. Take care Densey!

DC I will keep you in my prayers. You are a true hero and you have a great attitude. I know in my heart with the support of your family and friends and your CPD family you will get the support you need to make a full recovery. Keep that positive attitude because you are a true inspiration to all of us.

Your spirit is soaring! God bless you. I'm glad the department is taking care of you. I dropped you a card last week and I'm sure you have no clue who I am. My husband was laughing at me. He said, why did you sign the card Love, blank? I told him cuz I do love officer Cole. It was cute. He is still confused. But I do love you and I'll be contributing to that fund for you. You have my info on that card if u need anything else.

Although I did not know you I share the same blue uniform. I cannot begin to express how I feel, sometimes words are not enough. Brother I pray for you and ask God to help you and give you the courage to fight as hard as you can. I also pray that the lord may serve as a beacon of light and shine your way in your darkest moment. I also pray that your new marriage may be filled with love, prosperity, and peace.
Your brother in blue

Thanks.

I am not a participant of facebook or any of those blogs, otherwise, I'd ask this question directly to Officer Cole or his wife. Can someone please find out the address of the rehab facility that officer Cole is at and share it with us via Second City Cop? We want to send him something to say hello and keep his spirits going strong. Thank you.
