Here are our problems:
- The folks here think the prosthetics are too big. So, our current "help Eli walk" PT isn't even putting the legs on him. Not good.
- The prosthetics are held on Eli by that strap around the waist. It does a very poor job of keeping them where they are supposed to stay.
I'll add this: He is healthy and happy and that makes my heart leap. Last night at dinner, David was telling Eli, "I'm going to kiss your head." Then, he would come at Eli making smooching noises. Eli said very definitely "No you are not!" With a giant smile and an arm up in defense from the smooching. We both sat with pride bubbling up. Whenever Eli declares his desires, we can hardly not adhere. I remember a time when I was unsure if he'd be able to ask for things specifically. Praise God he can!
He will walk!
Love you all,Melissa
