I am back at the hospital now to finish my physical therapy. I had a two hour physical therapy session today, and now I am exhausted! UGH!
They moved Susie out of ICU this morning and now we are staying in the same room, but she is having a miserable time because she still has to lay flat on her back. I am glad I don't, that would be BORING! If the swelling goes down soon though they are going to slowly work on her sitting up. I am sure she is going to hurt and just thinking about it makes me cry for her pain. She told me before that she wishes she didn't feel pain but I told her that is not something she should wish, because I have to be careful for EVERYTHING! I would not wish this pain insenstivity disorder on anyone.

Mom came back tonight with Chinese food and Louisiana was with her. I almost forgot how small Louisiana was, I am taller than her, well at least I was before I lost both of my legs.
The doctors say I am healing the way I am suppose to be so they fit me for new prosthesis today and the doctors say my "new legs" should be ready by the time I am released from the hospital. I believe Mom told me they plan on letting me go home for good on the twenty fourth, which is only like a week away WOW!
I didn't tell Mom or Dad, but last night, well actually around two o clock this morning I fell out of bed, and lay there for like twenty minutes feeling sorry for myself until I realized how silly that was, I mean what is feeling sorry for myself going to change? Finally I got back into bed without Mom or Dad's help but Goldie did help a little, I can't wait until I have the full independence back, or should I say most of the independence, I will never be the same as before, I know that. I mean how could I be I lost both of my legs.
I got to talk to Johnny tonight, he is really upset over what happened to me but I assured him that i was going to be okay and I even promised that I would come and see him when I got out of the hospital, Mom said we are going to try to work something out so I can.
Well I am getting tired and I need to get some rest , I have more therapy tomorrow, hopefully I will be able to stand on those "therapy legs" without falling over and over again, but I guess I am making progress, it is just slow.
