Justin walked today on his one leg!!! Another very happy day! He was able to walk a few feet with the help of a walker. It will become easier when he has both legs, but for now he is making great progress with the left leg. Watching him walk was a great way to start off the day. Again it was a very happy, and emotional day!
Today has been another jam packed day. Just an example of his day today: Physical Therapy at 8:00 am, Occupational Therapy at 9:00 am, Physical medicine and Rehabilitation doctors appointment at 10:00 am, Meeting with Section leader and Family readiness coordinator at 11:45, Warrior clinic aka Primary Care doctors appointment at 1:00pm/13:00, Safety meeting 3:00 pm/15:00, and formation at 4:00pm/16:00. Justin told me today that he is working harder now then he ever did. Justin has weekly doctors visits with multiple doctors. I know he really enjoys outpatient, but I think he enjoyed when the doctors came to him during inpatient. So far all the doctors are pleased with his progress. Hopefully in two weeks Justin will be cleared for his right leg.
During his meeting with his section leader, Justin told him he wants to go back to school. So Justin should be starting criminal justice classes in January! He may also start working on getting his top secret clearance. Now that Justin is getting better he is able to see all the different job options he has available to him. He really wants to go back to school to get his degree, and it is so nice he can start working on it right here on base.
