I haven’t updated on Ian lately. Here goes. The good news is: Ian got new legs which will be permanent in a few weeks (once the fit is adjusted.) The bad news: the new legs are terribly uncomfortable.
He got them last Wednesday.. Went in to get them adjusted Friday because they hurt so badly, and is going in again tomorrow morning to see what else can be done. He says that they are really tight and painful. They also use a different type of liner and vacuum system to keep them on… So, since there are several variables we aren’t quite sure how to fix the problem. Please pray for his appointment tomorrow to go well. We get discouraged when his legs don’t fit well. It seems to slow him down and make everything else more difficult.
On another note, pray for those affected by the bombings in Boston. I heard on the news that many people had severe trauma to their lower extremities and may result in amputations. If so, these people will have a very real new life to adjust to. I sooooooo want to send Ian over there to encourage these people!!
