On your mark...
We go back in 2 weeks on April 4th. The leg needs some minor adjustments, to fit just right. Laura's prosthetic leg will look similiar to her left leg and will be fit for a princessa to wear!
We will stay for 3 or 4 days on our next trip. Laura will have more PT and will learn all about walking with her leg. As you can see from the video, Laura is excited about walking and a quick learner. Mrs. Jenn said we may not need to stay all 3 or 4 days. This leg doesn't have a knee joint either so it's easier to use. Laura's next leg will have a knee and require addtional training.
After we left Shriners I thought about April 4th. I felt like God was telling me yesterday that there would be something special about the date Laura would get her leg. Then I started to cry. April 4th is exactly 9 months from the day we first met Laura!
July 4, 2010!
Here she is below (looking a wee bit tired) almost 9 months after we met!
Thank you God!!
Laura brought Faith along on the trip. Faith has lost one of her prosthetic legs. Laura, you are such a goofball- I don't think your leg will fit her!
