Anyways, I hope it continiues to go as well as circumstances allow. Thanks for the pics Liz!

You can definitely tell by his face that it hurts, but WTG for standing for a few seconds!

Wow- it's amazing how fast "they" put you on your feet no matter how intense the surgery. My Dad had 5 bypasses years ago and the next day they had him walking down the halls. Your husband has great strength- and you do too. Thanks for sharing this journey.

Good to see the new brace is attached. Prayers for healing and continued progress.

You can see the strain in David's face, I also noticed a different shoe then last time!!

If you get the "Golf Channel"- I saw that there's going to be a program called "Golf in America". Showing soliders with Prothetic's learning to get their swing going. Looked like a good show. Wish I know the time etc?? I think I remember you saying David is a golfer?

Dave buddy,
yeah, looks a little painful but you're doing it! So um, will you end up shorter or taller in the end. I see you have your new shoe on. That would be a shame to not have been able to wear those again.
