wednesday morning, we woke up to ken being able to put as much weight on his legs as he could tolerate! he has some getting used to with walking again, but is doing incredible.
that day we also had a
follow-up appointment for his fractured C7 and the ligament damage
associated with it. this is the appointment we've been waiting for to
determine if he could finally take off the neck brace -- and yep! it's
and while we were at cooper that morning, we
walked across the street over to the hospital, i returned back to the
third floor, and i walked into the Trauma ICU until with Ken to
thank once again the heroes who cared for him. the last time we were in
that unit, life was so different, and it wasn't even that long ago.
our friends there made me promise to come back when he was up and
walking again, and when i agreed i never imagined the joy it would be.
it was amazing to see everyone again from such a different
perspective...it was a fun day for us.
