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.
