Visit with Michelle and Jillian!

It has been 5 weeks since Jack had his amputation.  I can't believe how time flies!  We went to see our prosthetist today so he could try to fit Jack again with the temporary prosthetic he made.  Jack was not ready to put it on last week, because his stump was still pretty sensitive to touch.  This week, he actually let him put the liner on (it fits snug against the skin) and the prosthetic shell.  He has a few finishing touches to make, but hopefully in the next few days we will have it done!  Jack will get a temporary prosthetic to wear and make adjustments to until the final prosthetic is made in a few more weeks.  As time goes on, I am so encouraged and hopeful. 

We enjoyed a wonderful visit from my sister Michelle and her daughter Jillian last week.  It was so wonderful for Jack (and me!) to have company during the week (and for Jack to be around someone who can't walk yet... it was good they shared lots of scooting and crawling time together!) It is hard for Jack to play with kids his own age now...just because he can't keep up with them (*yet*). 

Jillian is a little concerned about Jack's not-so-happy-moment...he's getting ready to throw himself down on the ground....wait for it...

Jack LOVES his new lawnmower from Aunt Michelle!  As you can see he gets around by "walking" on his knees...

Everyone had a birthday within a few weeks of each other, Michelle and Jillian - Feb James and Jack - March!
