Joe just went out to get his new leg

Update on this one too!
FALSE ALARM ON THE LEG…SORT OF. THEY HAD ME SIGN THE PAPERWORK TO PAY FOR IT HERE, SO THAT I COULD BRING THE LEG BACK WITH ME. GOT TO HANGER…TURNS OUT THAT IT WAS FOR A FINAL FITTING AND LENGTH ADJUSTMENTS. THEY HAD THE LEG ASSEMBLEMED ON A TEST SOCKET.

I DID ACUTALLY GET TO WALK ON THE LEG. MUCH SMOOTHER, SAFER, AND EASIER TO WALK ON. ACTUALLY TOOK A FEW TENTATIVE STEPS WITHOUT USING ANY AUXILLIARY AIDS, IE, NO CANE OR CRUTCHES, AND WITHOUT RELYING ON THE PARALLEL BARS. A BIT TRICKY BUT I SHOULD GET THE HANG OF IT IN NO TIME. MY FINAL SOCKET ETC., WILL BE READY FOR PICK IN 30 DAYS OR LESS. AT WHICH TIME SOME FURTHER ADJUSTMENT WILL BE MADE TO THE PNEUMATICS OF THE KNEE TO SUIT ME. AS I PROGRESS FURTHER ADJUSTMENTS WILL BE MADE.

IT ALSO HAS A WORKING, IE, ARTICULATING FOOT.

SO THAT IS WHERE THINGS STAND NOW. HANGER WILL LET DOC KNOW WHEN TO HAVE ME THERE FOR PICK UP.

Hello Everyone This is Joey,

I wanted to let you all know that Joe just went out to get his new leg. He asked for you all to let everyone know. He will probably write again upon his return.

I hope everyone is doing well. It is smoking hot here. I’ll talk to you all soon.
