First of all...welcome new friends! :) I am once again blown away by the kindness, generosity, and love and support that we have received from strangers across the world. It means more to us than we can express in words. Your words of support and love have touched our hearts deeply. Your generosity in donations back in January and again over the past couple days, have made it possible for us to not have to worry about Dylan's medical bills at all this year and will carry into next year as well. We are beyond grateful for that. That was a huge worry for us and that worry has been lifted and carried by each of you. Thank you from every corner of our hearts. I'm so grateful for my dear friend, Ashley at Make It and Love It. I am incredibly lucky to call her my friend. My life has been blessed by her and her friendship ever since we met 12 years ago.
Thank you, thank you...each and every one of you!!
When Dylan got his newest leg, Jason (our prosthetist) said that Dylan would probably be putting it on by himself in no time. Not that I doubted that Dylan would figure it out, but I thought this one would take longer for him to figure out. Once again, he has proved me wrong. When will I learn that he continues to exceed even my highest expectations of him? :) A little over a week after getting this new leg and he is doing almost all of it by himself. We have to help him get the liner positioned right on his leg, but then he rolls it on by himself and snaps his leg in place. Proud mommy moment! :) I finally got a video yesterday morning.
Last night while getting the boys ready for bed, Dylan didn't have his leg on, but kept trying to walk on his stump. This is the most he's ever tried walking on his stump before. He's been putting more weight on his stump lately when his leg is off, but nothing like this. We were pretty impressed!
