Israel wants to give God praise for the healing turn he has felt in his body over the last 36 hours. The pain is under control for longer lengths of time without so much pain medication. He got his first real restful night sleep last night without the medicated feeling, & he has been able to sit up longer today!!! The surgeon came to check in & he is pleased with the progress also!
Israel had a fellow amputee visit today who has also experienced a bilateral, above knee amputation on both legs. This visit encouraged both Israel & I to see that a person can live & walk, to an extent, with prosthetics, living a “new,normal” life!!!
I must also add that Israel’s heart rate is slowing down more each day(92 today)! Every day Israel is doing upper body exercises( which is what he’s doing in the picture) & leg exercises to ” stay in shape “.Today he really got into it!
God IS good, & Israel daily thanks The Lord for taking his legs, because he knows God has reasons & good plans for His children in every situation!
We both want to personally thank those that helped pour the concrete for our garage today & the MANY other of you dear friends who have helped, prayed, & encouraged us in myriads of ways!!!
Walking with Christ as our Guide,
Israel & Cori
