I get frustrated though, frustrated when I can not do things that used to come so easy to me, things like riding a bike, or simply going for a walk, but as I said it could have been worse.

 


 


 


 


I am doing alot better than I was a couple of weeks ago, I had to stop using my prosthesis for awhile because of pressure sores, and now I am struggling to get back on balance both litterally and figuratively. Kayleigh and Kenny have been great throughout this, they have been helping me with the babies, and boy are the babies getting big.


I have come to grips with what happened to me, with loosing my legs in that God-Forsaken land, but that does not mean having set-backs doesnt upset me, and I worked so hard and long to learn to walk with the prosthetics, but thankfully I am doing better and I know it could have been much worse.


Kayleigh is nine now, and becoming quite the young lady, as well as a wonderful helper, she has always been helpful though and respectful, that is one thing Kenny and I insist on, we will not have a child being rude or disrespectful it is just not very becoming as my grandmother would have said.


I am using my wheelchair for the time being, the sores have healed praise the Lord so I am able to practice around the house, but when I am out and about I just use my chair, it is easier for everyone involved including myself.


Rebecca Rachel called here the other day, she had some more tests, they are in London England, and the results are not what they hoped for, she had an infection and they told her she could not use her prosthetics either, and it is about driving her crazy, she is about the most independent child I have met.


I found myself in tears the other night when Kenny was at work, but Kayleigh came in the room to comfort me.  I was having one of those why me moments, and I hate them as much as I am sure people hate listening to them.  I know things could have been so much worse, I could have lost my life, but I came back and that is more than some of my friends did.


I get frustrated though, frustrated when I can not do things that used to come so easy to me, things like riding a bike, or simply going for a walk, but as I said it could have been worse.


Well the babies are do for there feeding and then I have to go pick Kayleigh up at school, I will write more later.


God Bless

Excellent expression of a mother's world as she copes with motherhood and complications resulting from her injuries/amputation; hope that all will improve for Shilah soon! Well done, Michelle, well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D
