I know, I know I haven't written in a long time, and I wanted to keep a regular journal but the twins, Dannielle Hope and Heather Lynn were born in early May, and I have been going through some extensive physical therapy to learn to walk on my prosthetic legs, I am coming to terms with the fact that I lost them in the war, but I can never get past the fact that a nine year old boy is the cause of it, and he died because of some twisted idea of what Faith is. It's just sickening, but I digress.
The twins are doing great, they are both happy babies, and they are doing great, Kayleigh loves being a big sister, and Kenny is relishing having babies in the house again, he often gets up in the night to care for them because he can obviously get in and out of bed easier than I can, but believe me I manage. When I am not wearing my prosthetic legs, but I can get around just fine, when it comes to playing with my girls, it doesnt matter to any of them that I don't have my legs, all that matters is that I am here, although Kayleigh is getting older and has more questions for me, she asks me if it hurt, and truthfully I can not remember how it felt< I just remember the shock of what happened and I remember how much I missed my family, other than that as for the physical pain I do not remember at the moment it happened, but I did experience Phanthom Pains, which had me believing my legs were there, before I knew any better.
I am not complaining though, I came back from the war, maybe not uninjured, but my family, my friends and my faith are seeing me through the struggles, I do have some, but I am getting through them, and getting the necessary help.
Kayleigh is out of school for the summer, and we are thinking about a trip to Nashville, I have been wanted to meet my pen pal Louisiana Sandusky, she has been so kind to me, and I appreciate woman like her, though I have no idea how she can take care of that many children. I have not been on a long trip like that since I came back from Iraq over eighteen months ago, and I need that vacation, I need the normalcy again, and Kenny has some time off of work.
Well I am going to go and play with my girls, Kayleigh, Dannielle and Heather...
