Wednesday the 25th

David had another surgery on his leg yesterday (hopefully his last).  They took out the vacuum and closed it with a skin graft.  That is great news.  Some more great news is that David took his first steps on Monday since the accident.  Using a walker and a physical therapist for support he actually walked about 50 feet.  He is having some more neurological testing today to see if they can figure out his right hand.  His left hand is doing well, just some numbness now.  His right hand is still not functioning, but the doctors are still hopeful that he will have complete use of it again.  David believes he moved it a little bit yesterday.  For those of you who don’t know, David is left handed.

We have made some new friends since being in Munich and one stopped by yesterday and took the photo below.  Her name is Jacqueline, and she is actually the individual who is responsible for helping us decide to come to Munich and finding us the medical evacuation assistance.  She is the sister of a Presbyterian missionary in Lviv that helped us immediately after the accident.

  1. This is such encouraging news! We continue to put you into the Light and pray for healing, hope and strength. We have two members of our church traveling to Munich in late August; if you are still there and David is up for a visit they have offered to visit and bring personal greetings from us here at Duncan Memorial. Just passing that on as an offer.

  17. So happy to hear that recovery is going well and that y’all are together for support. One question on the L’Viv activities. In early August I need to tell Upper Room whether to ship Sept/Oct issues. Is someone coming in temporarily and, if so, to whom and where do I have them sent? If I don’t hear from you by Aug 3, I will cancel this shipment.
    Your Brother in Christ,
