Big Steps...

Mom walked with a cane today! Ash was there to see and said it brought tears to her eyes. Truly this is pretty unreal. Mom wore a brace on her bad knee and with very little help walked about 45 feet. The picture shows her PT helping her, but most of her walking was done unassisted. Coincidentally, Dad & Jack built a ramp on the front porch today. $116 in lumber, a quick 2 hours, and BAM - the ramp was done. Despite Mom's big steps today she'll probably use a wheelchair for some time and that ramp will make life easier for her. As cool as it was to see the ramp go up today, it will be way cooler to see it come down someday soon.
