I went and seen John today. He got his new wheelchair a few weeks ago and he loves it. It is a really neat chair! It can lift him up to eye level with people.
It can go about 6 miles an hour. It also can go through trails in the woods. The new facility is the best place he has been to yet. I still go about 3- 4 times per week . Last week I only got to go once because my van was broke down.
John is learning even more ways to be independent at home. He is doing therapy everyday. His bedsore is gone completely! The surgery was a complete success on helping it get healed. He had another small one and it is gone too.
I am really proud of his strength and courage through all of this. He has fought tooth and nail just to get where he is now. He will still need help everyday to get in and out of his chair and into the shower. But he has made much progress.
He still does not have alot of upper body strength either. But we are hoping maybe that he will get stronger.
Thanks to everyone who has continually prayed for John and Elizabeth and me. Your prayers are much appreciated.
