"Hi all.steve had sl better today,ate some toast and sat up.managed to look at
his stump for the first time which is quite a psycological breakthrough.physio
has given him a wii for building up his upper body strength which seems like a
fab idea and am sure will entertain sam when he goes in tomorrow.lots of lines
taken out today which has helped"

Great updates, so in awe of this man. His strength and his spirit.
Fantom pain is the worst, my husband had that when he lost his leg.

This update is great news. Glad to hear that he is progressing so well that lines can be removed.

I am sure that the mental trauma of losing a limb, even when planned, is very difficult, but knowing Steve as we do here, he will handle it in style and move on to doing what he can to get healthy and strong again.

Thanks for the update Mags!

For the updates, so proud of Steve, bet he does all the physical therapy that he'll have to do and that in it's self takes a lot will power. I've got to admire the man, he's got so much strength, I think he pulls it in from his loving family.

Sounds like he is progressing so much faster than thought he would. Glad he is trying to eat something too. Thanks to his wife for keeping people up on his condition and especially you for passing on the updates. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

Steve and Kelly,

It is amazing all that you have both been through. I am never sure whether it is harder to be the patient or the one who loves the patient. You both have a lot to adjust to...be gentle with yourselves. We are all rooting for you. Wii sounds like a great idea. You are very much in my mind and heart .

Just amazing to hear that Steve is making so much progress in so little time.

Steve,

I am keeping you and your wonderful family in my thoughts and sending good vibes for a speedy recovery. Have fun with that Wii. Heck, I'm so old I don't even know what a Wii does. LOL

Luv,

Wolfen
