Happy New Year!!!!!

HI Everyone,
It's been a while since we've really had anything to report. Earl continues to work hard at walking with his prosthesis at Rehab. Our time is M W F from 10:30 - 11:30 if you'd like to come down. He spends the time warming with crutches (after we get the prosthesis on...which some days is quite a chore) and then he starts walking with no crutches/canes. It takes a lot of concentration because he has to put his weight on the new leg the right way....or it bends and he falls. He has practiced falling and doesn't like doing it...! We can bring the leg home on weekends, but he hasn't brought it home for the last 2 weekends, due to the fact that he hasn't been feel well as of late.

Earl will go for blood work and a CT scan this Wednesday with the follow-up appointment on January 19th...with Dr Wong. Please keep him in your prayers as we will find out what is happening with his lungs. We are also hoping to find out if the benign tumor is doing anything and if it is...what the plans are for removing it.

We had a nice Christmas with Family and Friends...and a lot of just resting. Hope you had the same.

Earl turned 21 on Friday and I am trying to plan a little party for him.....stay posted for the details.
