Started with a walker, but then upgraded to crutches after a few minutes. I couldn't be happier. I have never felt so normal in my entire life, as weird as that may sound(: I can now walk heal to toe and push off. Mom and dad think I look taller, only because I'm now actually even on both sides! This entire process of amputating and getting to the point of having a leg has been hard but so worth it. Throughout my journey so far I haven't cried, until today when I got to "walk out" of the office all by myself feeling on top of the world. Those were happy tears.
