    Couldn:t stop crying

    My brother just recently got his first artificial limb. I went with him for the final fitting. I saw him walk for the first time since his amputation. There is a nine year age difference between us, and when he was learning to walk, I was there to help him. O ised to sit at one end of the room while our Mother sat at the other I would use cookies to bribe him into walking towards me. I told him I was going to do the same thing this time but chose not to. When I saw him walk again, I just couldn't hold back the tears. I had to leave the room. I was so overwhelmed. I am so blessed to have been there to share in this wonderful experience. I know that he still has a long way to go, but with GOD'S help, he can make it through anything. I AM SO HAPPY!!!!!!

    Hey, new from SC!

    Hello, I am a family member of someone who recently had an amputation. My brother had his left leg amputated below the knee on 1-6-2012 due to complications from diabetes. He has become such an inspiration to me because he didn't let it slow him down, and he has never felt sorry for himself. He just keeps trying until he gets it right. It's hard sometimes to stand back and let him do things for himself, but I came to realize that if I did everything for him, he would never get up and do for himself. That has been the hardest thing about this whole situation, but hopefully, he will be getting his prosthetic next Thursday. I can't wait to see him walk again.
