Video: Cattle breeder Michael Ingram is able to stand and walk short distances unassisted

Duaringa 4712
“We went and fixed up a fence where we were straining a few posts and putting a few extra wires in … and I wanted Michael to come down and give me a hand,” Mr Bell said. His speech has improved dramatically and he is able to stand and walk short distances unassisted.”I am just like a little kid walking.”The changes are more than physical — they have opened up another world to Mr Ingram.”I get to meet a lot of lovely people and that’s the biggest thing I’ve found,” he said.After Mr Ingram had his accident, he returned to his family home in Alpha in western Queensland, where he was isolated and had no communication.He bought his Duaringa property three years ago, which has put him in better contact with the outside world and made this rehabilitation possible.”I used to be very talkative, and then I became not so talkative and it’s helped me come back.”

Michael Ingram loves nothing more than to get outside and inspect his Droughtmaster cattle. These two-hour sessions are made up of repetitive exercises — lifting his legs, squeezing a ball — and it is hard work. (ABC Capricornia: Inga Stünzner)
While the Bells note the physical changes, one of the biggest changes has been Mr Ingram’s mental health. “It probably took him twice as long, but I want him to get outside.”Before, he wouldn’t come out of the house and he’d be on his phone,” Mr Bell laughed.Mr Ingram’s next goal is to attend the Droughtmaster National Bull Sale in Gracemere in September, where he will sell bulls from his newly established stud. He has an ambitious goal.”I will walk into the Droughtmaster judging at Beef 2018, which is only two weeks away,” he said.Mr Ingram breeds Droughtmaster cattle and the expo Beef 2018, held in Rockhampton every three years, is one of the world’s large beef cattle events.Measuring the progressThere is no doubt in Mr Hansen’s mind that Mr Ingram will be walking up a set of stairs onto the stage at Beef 2018.”I said, ‘right, you’re going to walk 20 metres up onto that stage and away you go and you’re going to do that without any walking aids’,” Mr Hansen said. Ms Bell puts it down to the fact he is now meeting younger people in Rockhampton.”Not just two oldies like us — it’s a much better environment for him,” Ms Bell said.Before, he was welded to his phone and rarely ventured out of the house.”He was inclined to be a bit depressed,” Ms Bell said.Now Mr Ingram has built into his gym routine going out for coffee and meeting up with his daughter and son, who are in boarding school.He is also more involved with work and will ride a four-wheeler to muster and help in the cattle yards, although Mr Bell does most of the outside work.”Michael can stand on his own and look at his cattle, and he couldn’t do that eight months ago,” Mr Bell said.”He would fall over.”Even on the morning the ABC visited, Mr Ingram was out fencing, something he would not have done a year before. “I was in a wheelchair and they said I would never walk again, but here I am walking,” Mr Ingram said.”I wish I had met Glenn 15 years ago.”

Michael Ingram travels the 250km-round trip to get to the gym twice a week. It looks easy — standing in the middle of a paddock.But it has taken Michael Ingram almost two decades of hard work and determination to get to this point.The central Queensland cattle breeder acquired a brain injury 18 years ago when he fell off his horse while mustering, leaving him unable to walk or use the right side of his body.”I was unconscious for eight weeks and in hospital for 10 months and when I woke, I thought it was the next morning and I thought, ‘Where the bloody hell am I?’,” Mr Ingram recalled.”I tried to move, but I couldn’t.”Within a year, he was back on his horse, but was still unable to walk.All this changed eight months ago when he pulled a muscle and made the trip to Rockhampton to see a physiotherapist.The physiotherapist put him in touch with the head coach at the gym, Glenn Hansen, who embarked on the journey to have Mr Ingram stand and walk without an aid. (ABC Capricornia: Inga Stünzner)
“And that has probably sparked him and that’s what’s created this push in the last six to eight weeks because he can see it’s going to happen — he knows it’s going to happen,” Mr Hansen said.Mr Ingram walked more than 100 metres during a recent session and although that might not sound like much, it used to take him 20 minutes to walk 30 metres.”Now he can get there in seven minutes and it looks good,” Mr Hansen said.The challenge has been having Mr Ingram see his progress and knowing the limitations.”Brain injuries can be very challenging because it’s not like having a broken leg, where you can see the progress,” Mr Hansen said.”He tries really hard, he never gives in and he tries too hard sometimes and that’s just born into the fact that it’s just hard work.” “I think the one word I would use to describe Michael is inspirational.”I would almost 99 per cent guarantee most people have not faced a challenge as great as he is facing right now.””The lesson to take away from this story is to appreciate what you’ve been given, appreciate what you have, because one day it can be taken away in an instant.”Sometimes it will come back and sometimes it won’t, but in between that there’s a hell of a lot of work to actually get what you want.” Learning curveGraham and Vicki Bell have been living with Mr Ingram as his carers for the past three years and they have witnessed the change.”It’s made a huge difference — they came here when I first came here and we’ve grown up together,” Mr Ingram said.The couple, who spent years travelling around the country as caretakers on people’s properties, first met Mr Ingram five years ago.

Mr Ingram makes the 250 kilometre round trip from his property in Duaringa to Rockhampton twice a week to attend his gym sessions, and every couple of months he will come in five days a week. (ABC Capricornia: Inga Stünzner)
Standing among his cattle on his property is a remarkable achievement, but Mr Ingram is not going to stop there. Photo:

Anne-Marie – Machine Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I feel an ache in my body
But if only I’d have no bones
I know the air isn’t breathable
And it’s no good for my lungs
I feel an anger inside of me
Burns like the sun in my chest
I got no patience or self-control
God knows I’m trying my best
[Chorus]
If I was a machine
I’d never have to worry
I know that I could always press delete
If I was a machine
I wouldn’t be affected
By violence on the television screen
Wouldn’t have a heart
So you couldn’t break it
No such thing as time
So you couldn’t waste it
That would be the dream
The world could never bother me
If I was a ma- if I was a machine
If I was a machine
If I was a ma- if I was ma-
[Verse 2]
I don’t do well under pressure
But if I was made out of steel
I would be so damn invincible
Nothing could undo my will
I wouldn’t make bad decisions
No promises I regret
And everything that makes me miserable
Is a consequence of my flesh
[Chorus]
If I was a machine
I’d never have to worry
I know that I could always press delete
If I was a machine
I wouldn’t be affected
By violence on the television screen
Wouldn’t have a heart
So you couldn’t break it
No such thing as time
So you couldn’t waste it
That would be the dream
The world could never bother me
If I was a ma- if I was a machine
If I was a machine
If I was a ma- if I was ma-
[Bridge]
Drunk and high every night
Numb the pain oh
Flush it all down the drain
If I could find a way out of this hole
I could do anything
Every night different guy
Numb the pain oh
Flush it all down the drain
If I could find a way out of this hole
I could do anything
[Chorus]
If I was a machine
I’d never have to worry
I know that I could always press delete
If I was a machine
I wouldn’t be affected
By violence on the television screen
Wouldn’t have a heart
So you couldn’t break it
No such thing as time
So you couldn’t waste it
That would be the dream
The world could never bother me
If I was a ma- if I was a machine
If I was a machine
If I was a ma- if I was ma-

Ugly God – Leave a Tip Lyrics

[Intro]
I’m not going anywhere, Nikko
[Verse 1: Ugly God]
Ayy, ayy, ayy, I’m flexin’ on my exes
New bitch, she too wavy, yuh
I’m in Houston, Texas touchin’ on a few ladies, yuh
I can’t trust a nigga, everybody fugazi, yuh
I ain’t text you baby, sorry I got too lazy, yuh
In my Jeep back and forth to AutoZone
Sippin’ lemonade but I still double up the Styrofoam
Pull up to your crib and serve you up like I was Domino’s
Then I hit your bitch, she feel the dick all in her collarbone
Pull up on your bitch and turn her on just like a flashlight
She keep comin’ back, she blow my dick just like a bagpipe
Niggas tough on Instagram, but in person they act right
I do this with no effort, I know these niggas mad tight
[Chorus: Ugly God & Splash Drexler]
Yeah, I’m walkin’ down the strip with your bitch, I’ma rub her hip
Nigga talkin’ shit, put that psh right up on his lip (brrr)
Ayy, I feel like the shit today (I feel like the shit today)
Woke up this morning, I might fuck your bitch today (Drexler, Drexler, Drexler)
Ayy, she gon’ suck the tip and leave a tip (and leave a tip)
Ayy, she gon’ suck the tip and leave a tip (and leave a tip)
Ayy, she gon’ suck the tip and leave a tip (and leave a tip)
Ayy, she gon’ suck the tip and leave a tip (Drexler, Drexler, Drexler)
[Verse 2: Splash Drexler]
New play, new lyin’ bitch

Got a new K, threw away ’bout five sticks
Bitch I’m Splash Drexler, check my motherfuckin’ drip, nigga
Rented Beamer, goin’ 110 (skrrrt)
Pocket rocket, Glock with the beam, huh (brrr)
No more wearin’ seams (damn)
I know y’all ain’t no team, let me fuck your best friend
Me and your bitch booted up at the Waffle House, hope that she an’ anemic (yuh)
Money counter beepin’, need a red Hellcat
Push that bitch like a demon (push that hoe)
Tryna get my racks in
We heard that you was that nigga for the past tense
Fresh young nigga Splash Drexler get that pack in (yuh, yuh)
Look, look, look like money (brrr)

Thanks Ugly God

Lil Baby – My Time Lyrics

[Hook]
She all on my drip she just like my my

Keep poppin’ these precs I done got way too high
She all on my drip she just like my my
Tell ’em they can step over it’s my time
I get what I want and I don’t wait in line
Keep poppin’ these precs I done got way too high
[Verse 1]
I gotta slow down ain’t tryna lose my mind
I got on two watches tryna keep up with the time
Do this for Lil Steve, they gave my lil homie a dime
You can’t see the greatness in me nigga then you blind
I went back to the basics didn’t sign
Tryna treat me like I’m basic not I
I got all these blue faces ohh my

I’d probably spend my last to see her smile
I was just sittin’ in the prison goin wild, now I’m standing on stage gettin paid, they like my sound
[Hook]

Niggas act like they don’t fuck with me but on my timeline
Gettin’ fucked up on the block I had some very long nights
I’ma savage to my heart you can see it in my eyes
If I tell you I’ll quit trappin babygirl then I’ll be lying

Take me for a joke they try to treat me like a fool
Super paranoid ion leave the house without my tool
Hunnit bricks in I got it [?] by next June
Hardly ever see my son that shit hurt me
My bitch act like she don’t understand I’m working
I’m like how the fuck you think you got them purses
And the way you out here actin’ you don’t deserve shit
Don’t keep callin’ my phone that shit gettin’ worsome
And I keep drinkin’ this lean I’m just gettin’ worser
[Hook]
She all on my drip she just like my my
Tell ’em they can step over it’s my time

Keep poppin’ these precs I done got way too high She all on my drip she just like my my
Tell ’em they can step over it’s my time
I get what I want and I don’t wait in line
Keep poppin’ these precs I done got way too high

Tee Grizzley – 2 Vaults Lyrics

I need two vaults
I’m the new Hulk
[Chorus: Tee Grizzley]
Too much money, I need like two vaults (I need two)
Stacks big and green, I call my pockets the new Hulk
We don’t pay attention to no loose talk
Shoot that choppa hundred times, I had to let it cool off
Diamonds dancin’ on me, doin’ the moonwalk (drip)
Can’t wear my AP, I had to let it cool off (drip)
Almost died from pneumonia, had to take my jewels off
We don’t argue with these niggas, we just let them tools talk
[Verse 1: Tee Grizzley]
Hit your bitch and give her back, now she yours again (she yours)
Back to back in them Ferraris, we stay horseplayin’ (skrrt)
Run up on us and the morgue gon’ have corpses in
Harvard student doin’ my taxes, I got dork friends
I put rings on them hundreds, bitch, I married them (bitch, I married them)
You see my niggas, money and ice everywhere on them (that shit everywhere)
And we fuck each other’s hoes ’cause we don’t cherish them (that’s a fact)
But we gon’ leak out that info, we can’t embarrass them (we got y’all covered)
Can’t leave the country, but I got my beat from London (got my beat from London)
These niggas talk but see me out and ain’t on nothin’ (ain’t on shit)
I’m in the stu, I need a Perc’, go get the runner
You got shooters, I got hunters, you got twenties, I got hundreds, nigga
[Chorus: Tee Grizzley]
Too much money, I need like two vaults (I need two)
Stacks big and green, I call my pockets the new Hulk
We don’t pay attention to no loose talk
Shoot that choppa hundred times, I had to let it cool off
Diamonds dancin’ on me, doin’ the moonwalk (drip)
Can’t wear my AP, I had to let it cool off (drip)
Almost died from pneumonia, had to take my jewels off
We don’t argue with these niggas, we just let them tools talk
[Verse 2: Tee Grizzley]
Wire 200 to Izzy, get my ice here (overnight)
These niggas plastic, y’all as real as Buzz Lightyear
Nigga say he got that dope, then what the price is? [Intro: Tee Grizzley & Young Thug]
We got London on da Track
Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy
I need two vaults
With the two cars
What that coupe cost? What that coupe cost? (What the price is?)
I don’t drink, but it’s for sale, we got pints in (we got pints in)
We got Tech in (we got Tech), we got Act’ in (we got Act’)
.45 bullets jammed in that MAC-10
They don’t check none of the artists, so I’m packin’
It’s a problem, then you’ll see me get crackin’ (shoot somethin’)
Addy 212, bitch, what’s brackin’ (what’s good?)
I might be in the Escalade but I ain’t lackin’ (know it’s on me)
Put that bag on you, act like I don’t know what happened (damn, straight up)
I hear the story, be like, “Damn, that was tragic” (That’s fucked up)
[Chorus: Tee Grizzley]
Too much money, I need like two vaults (I need two)
Stacks big and green, I call my pockets the new Hulk
We don’t pay attention to no loose talk
Shoot that choppa hundred times, I had to let it cool off
Diamonds dancin’ on me, doin’ the moonwalk (drip)
Can’t wear my AP, I had to let it cool off (drip)
Almost died from pneumonia, had to take my jewels off
We don’t argue with these niggas, we just let them tools talk
[Verse 3: Lil Yachty]
Yeah, yeah, Lil Boat, ayy
I’m still under 21, so I can’t cop a pistol (yeah)
But them choppas in my name and they can’t wait to hit you
Crib came with a court and some legal fishes (yeah)
Carrot cake around my neck, VS1 the crystals
Extended magazines (damn), chauffeured limosines (damn)
Before I dropped out, I fucked the daughter of the dean (I did)
65 thousand dollars in a nigga’s jeans
Ball like Sefolosha (yeah), skrrt the Testarosa (yeah)
Nigga all about the guap like a stock broker (yeah)
Brother with me and he shootin’, no damn focus
Every bitch I ever fucked with was mad older (for real)
Had to keep this shit player like the OG Yoda, Lil Boat
[Chorus: Tee Grizzley]
Too much money, I need like two vaults (I need two)
Stacks big and green, I call my pockets the new Hulk
We don’t pay attention to no loose talk
Shoot that choppa hundred times, I had to let it cool off
Diamonds dancin’ on me, doin’ the moonwalk (drip)
Can’t wear my AP, I had to let it cool off (drip)
Almost died from pneumonia, had to take my jewels off
We don’t argue with these niggas, we just let them tools talk Get that tool off
What your jewels cost?

J Cole – Kevin’s Heart lyrics

[Pre-Chorus]
She my number one, I don’t need nothing on the side
Said that I was done for good and don’t want no more lies
But my phone be blowing up, temptations on my line
I stare at the screen a while before I press decline
But she plants a seed and it still lingers in my mind
Told myself I’m strong enough to shake it and I’m trying
But I’m only human, I know loving you’s a crime
If I take this cookie now one day I’ll do the time
[Chorus]
Slip me a xanny at once (somebody)
I got the earth in a blunt (smoke)
I get the skirt when I want (skrrt!)
I get the skirt when I want (skrrt!)
Due to the money aroma (somebody)
My girl she got a diploma (smoke)
She got wife written all over
She got wife written all over
[Verse 1]
All a nigga know is how to fuck a good thing up
Run from the pain, sip lean, smoke tree up
When I’m in your town press pound hit me up
When I’m in your town press pound hit me up
Only if you down and you slurp good D up
If the work good I’ll be back for the re-up
Hate when I creep and the phone wake me up
Fake like I’m sleep knowing damn well I be up
Monkey on my back and I walk a hundred miles
Guilt make a nigga feel fake when he smile
Love get confused in the mind of a child
‘Cause love wouldn’t lie like I lie and it’s wild
Wanna have my cake and another cake too
Even if the baker don’t bake like you
Even when the flavor don’t taste like you
So I’m back mobbing with the late night crew
All in your mind with fears that would come true
The back of my mind, the back of my mind was you
Wishing that I could blind myself from view
And only have eyes, and only have eyes for you
[Chorus]
Slip me a xanny at once (somebody)
I got the earth in a blunt (smoke)
I get the skirt when I want (skrrt!)
I get the skirt when I want (skrrt!)
Due to the money aroma (somebody)
My girl she got a diploma (smoke)
She got wife written all over
She got wife written all over
[Bridge]
I’m a fake nigga and it’s never been clearer
Can’t see myself when I look in the mirror
Can’t see myself when I look in the mirror
Can’t see myself when I look in the mirror
I’m a fake nigga and it’s never been clearer
Can’t see myself when I look in the mirror
Can’t see myself when I look in the mirror
Can’t see myself when I look in the mirror
[Pre-Chorus]
She my number one I don’t need nothing on the side
Said that I was done for good and don’t want no more lies
But my phone be blowing up, temptations on my line
I stare at the screen a while before I press decline
But she plants a seed and it still lingers in my mind
Told myself I’m strong enough to shake it and I’m trying
But I’m only human, I know loving you’s a crime
If I take this cookie now one day I’ll do the time
[Verse 2]
I love her, I don’t want to lose her
I’m selfish, I know that I use her
My ego get stroked and I bruise her
My ego get stroked and I bruise her
My actions I know they confusin’
At home I look happy as usual
On the road I’m a mack, I’m a chooser
I’m a addict, I’m maskin’ that
Kevin’s Heart
[Other]
They tell me “What’s done in the dark
Will find a way to shine”
I done did so much that when you see you might go blind
What’s done in the dark will always find a way to shine
I done did so much that when you see you might go blind

Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry lyrics

[Intro]
Right now, I’m in a state of mind
I wanna be in, like, all the time
Ain’t got no tears left to cry
So I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up
I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up
I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up
I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up (oh, yeah)
[Refrain]
I’m pickin’ it up (yeah), pickin’ it up (yeah)
Lovin’, I’m livin’, so we turnin’ up
Yeah, we turnin’ it up
[Verse 1]
Ain’t got no tears in my body
I ran out, but boy, I like it, I like it, I like it
Don’t matter how, what, when, who tries it
We’re out here vibin’, we vibin’, we vibin’
[Pre-Chorus]
Comin’ out, even when it’s rainin’ down
Can’t stop now, can’t stop, so shut your mouth
Shut your mouth, and if you don’t know
Then now you know it, babe
Know it, babe, yeah
[Chorus]
Right now, I’m in a state of mind
I wanna be in, like, all the time
Ain’t got no tears left to cry
So I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up (oh yeah)
I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up
Oh, I just want you to come with me
We’re on another mentality
Ain’t got no tears left to cry
So I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up (oh yeah)

[Verse 2]
They point out the colors in you, I see ’em too
And, boy, I like ’em, I like ’em, I like ’em
We’re way too fly to partake in all this hate
We’re out here vibin’, we vibin’, we vibin’
[Pre-Chorus]
Comin’ out, even when it’s rainin’ down
Can’t stop now, can’t stop, so shut your mouth
Shut your mouth, and if you don’t know
Then now you know it, babe
Know it, babe, yeah
[Chorus]
Right now, I’m in a state of mind
I wanna be in, like, all the time
Ain’t got no tears left to cry
So I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up (oh yeah)
I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up
Oh, I just want you to come with me
We’re on another mentality
Ain’t got no tears left to cry (don’t cry)
So I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up (oh yeah)
I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up

We’re on another mentality
Ain’t got no tears left to cry (cry)
So I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up (oh yeah)
