Humbled, Grateful, Thankful and Blown away!
I am touched by the amount of support that you my GTT family have shown my wife, my 2 babies, Jenny and Cheyenne and myself has been overwhelming. I have always been a tough guy and the amount of tears I have shed these past few days is more than I have shed in a very long time! I am eternally grateful to Sullybear and jdforever for spear heading this for us! Their kindess and ALL of yours is something we could never hope to repay except to be there if the need ever arrises so we can return it.
I have always met my challenges head on by myself for most of my life. It wasn't until I met Georgette that I realized I was in love for the first time. Real love that I have seen from the posts of members on here. Old school. Walk hand in hand and side by side ready to take on everything.. Well you know what I mean. I can't do it by myself anymore, a realization that crushes me. The heart and spirit are always there and I try my damndest to do what I can, when I can, but it will never be enough.
So I try to keep pushing and put on the happy face with the big smile and I keep driving on. I have my days, more than I want to when its not so good. I tell her and say, honey its not a good day. Hopefully now that I have had my surgery the bad days will be alot less and the good days will out shine the bad! I am looking at the next chapter of my life which is going to start on Monday and hopefully once I am fully healed I will be able to walk again with no pain. I am hoping that my brain recognizes that my old feet are gone and the phantom pain goes away. As I am typing this the phantoms have been giving me fits today and the lightning bolts are shooting down my legs. Good times.
I go to get measured for my prosthetics! My stumps have not completely healed yet but they have shrunk so with fingers crossed and a lot of prayers I am hoping it goes well. Find out in 2 days!
So with my Love and my Rock by my side we face the next step together! Pun intended!
So from the bottom of my heart I will go now and say,
THANK YOU our GTT family!
