stabbed and two broke legs, part II

The humor is, “you should have seen the other guy”! This other guy is the sharp edge of the pine box I landed on 4-months ago. The white dent in the middle of the picture is the groove of my right leg and beside that you can see my left.

To describe the layers of healing is difficult. I watched it all through faith without casts to hide every healing moment and seeming setback and as special as that was, it is no fun remembering. I hope you will use this knowledge to bless someone else. Time for me to move on so here goes… by my bedside as I progressed:

One setback moment was after 3-weeks when I was petrified realizing I couldn’t lift my left leg. THE ANSWER was to stretch the muscle by first going back into the fetal position where the muscles took on the memory of convulsing and, while in THAT position, I was able to lift my hip up and down. Once the muscle was engaged, I straightened the leg a little more and again lifted as best I could. Eventually, the leg was completely straight and now, I had reached my goal!
