“You’ve got to commit to it!”
That’s what Jon’s PT told him as Jon started training on the loaner leg 2x daily this week. Each step Jon takes has to be intentional. Once he takes the step, he has to follow through so his leg will work properly. Just the right weight shift, not enough and he could easily fall. “Easier said than done,” Jon said!
Jon worked really hard to gain balance, strength, and ease as each step took thought, effort, and lots of sweat. By the end of the five days, the PT guys let Jon take the leg home for the weekend to practice on his own. With only one graceful fall, Jon is doing great!!!
Thank you all for praying for Jon’s skin on his stump, we check it after each session & it’s holding up. Praise God!!
Continue to pray for Jon to build up strength as he gets fatigued & his left leg starts to shake. With time his body will be used to walking again.
We’ve been having a great time here in Rochester at Pat & Dawn Wester‘s house. They are taking such good care of us!!
“The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with His hand.” (Ps 37:23, 24)
