    I did 17 minutes under the water today, it was a blast! I can’t wait for when I get up to 30 minutes or more, and I am also anxiously awaiting for when I can flip over onto my stomach in the pool under the water as well. That’s going to be a ton of fun. If all goes well I hope to do a dive at Wazee Lake next year at the DUI DOG Rally and Demo days. That would be awesome, I can handle the cooler water, won’t be a problem. That should be a great place to dive with lots of help. I’ll pass on ice diving though

    I added some pictures to here from my dive today….. http://matt55125.tripod.com/scuba/
    I was hoping to add the videos but I am out of space on my web site! We got some pretty good ones, I didn’t have air in my mask this time, it was a little foggy unfortunately. I need to get my own rig. I’m hooked on diving.

    Take care and hope to see you underwater soon!

    Matt

    Matt, although I haven't posted on any of your threads yet, I have been following them for the past year or so. I've got to say that everytime I read one of your posts regarding your achievements, it brings a tear to my eye.

    Way to go!!!

    WAY TO GO MATT! You are an inspiration! My Fiance has MD. Freidrich's Ataxia (I think I spelled it right.)I show her your posts. She wants to snorkel. Not keen on diving yet but I figure once she see's what's under there her mind may change.

    I'm sooo happy for you Matt! How long do you think it will take until you can flip around and will there be any complications for your breathing when you do?
