Well quickly we are approaching the 1 year mark since all this began. We are trying to think of all the positives...for many reasons, but mostly for Safiya. She will be 1 next Wednesday. We are having a bday party at the house this Saturday...Frankie's and family/friends and one of those air/balloon castle things, that also has a waterslide....should be cool, although it sounds like it might not be as sunny as we once thought. Any one who want to say hi and see our progress...feel free to stop by and say hello, if you know where we live. Should be plenty of pizza. I can't remember if I posted it, but Carol still hasn't gotten her legs yet. She is supposed to get them next Wednesday, the 10th, on Safiya's birthday. She got to really try them at her prosthetist last Friday. She got up and walked very well right from the get go. Most of Carol's Physical Therapy has been on hold for more than 2 months. She has been having much hand therapy for her right hand, and has really enjoyed that. She does still work out at the house 1 hour per day or so. She has ab's of steel. It is amazing the amount of mid and lower body strength it takes to an amputee. Her new legs are neat. The come up a little higher....above the knees. The keep her from hyper-extending her legs, which she had a habit of. The feet themselves are super neat, and allow her to flip-flops, and heels if she wishes. Something she has been bugging her prosthetist from the get go.
