Monday finally came and Bob was ready. He had a good nights sleep and he felt stronger. During physical therapy he worked on standing and taking a few steps. His physical therapist decided he needed a brace for each leg that would start just below the knee for support and go all the way down the ankle and into his shoe. The braces will be made to fit Bob's legs and should be ready to go by Wednesday. I'll bring his shoes tomorrow. The therapist feels that this will give Bob the support that he needs for standing and walking. He also worked his legs on a machine that was similar to a bicycle. I took a video to record his activities and later to show him his progress. He had occupational therapy and an x-ray of his back too. He sat in his wheelchair all day and gladly ate each meal. In the evening they helped him with his first shower since the beginning of February. What a great feeling! Now he is watching the Butler/UConn game and hoping for a Butler win. With a busy day like today, he should have a good nights sleep.
Bob requested today that everyone pray for strength and healing of his legs, ankles and feet. He so wants to be able to stand and walk again. I feel confident that he will. I'm sure this is all apart of God's plan.
