The braces have arrived. Bob was able to walk a dozen steps with them today. His legs and feet are very painful but he was able to walk better with the braces which start below his knee and go into his shoe. They give him the support which is necessary for him to be able to practice walking.
Today was a very emotional day. Being unable to walk is very scary for Bob and me. He is not afraid of hard work but he is worrying about how long it will take to get back to walking without all of these devices. The nerves in his legs and feet just need to start responding. We ask all of our friends for their continued prayers. We know how good God has been to us and I know He will continue walking next to Bob as he learns how to walk.
