After publishing my last post outlining the accident that left me paralyzed from the torso down, I wanted to provide an update a year later since I had an influx of comments, emails, calls, and even visits after I broke the news to the public.

To say that the past year in recovery has been difficult would be an understatement. During this time, I have had to learn to walk again, and with almost full paralysis, the chance of me being able to use my limbs to their full extent like I was once able to is slim. Even spending several hours a day with physical therapy can only give me back limited access to my limbs.

While I haven’t thrown away my trekking poles quite yet, it’s an important realization and difficult moment of self-reflection to understand that I won’t be able to hike again after the accident. While there will be some mobility restored in the coming months as I complete my roadmap that my physical therapist has curated for me, a full recovery is out of the picture. Given the nature of hiking a mountain, I don’t think that I’ll be competitively hiking (or hiking for leisure, for that matter) soon, but that won’t stop me from cheering on my fellow hikers and team members.

I thought I’d just give a quick update on how I was doing because I haven’t updated the site in so long. To see it turn from an image board into a personal blog isn’t the turn of events that I saw happening when I first had the idea for Fukung, but you know what they say: “expect the unexpected.”

Welcome to Fukung.net

After logging in, each user has a dedicated space on the server where he or she is able to upload media.

Fukung.net, the second version of an old site, is happy to be back and providing our image and video uploading services.
