Today was a huge day in Xena's comeback. Miles and I met her and her parents in Seattle to witness and record her first steps with her brand new leg. 24 years after learning the first time, she had the chance to do it again, but luckily, this time she wasn't wearing diapers.
Xena did fantastic today. She was emotional, loud (as usual), and completely psyched to be walking, albeit slowly and cautiously. Her parents, Connie and Denny, were looking on with pride. Xena's brand new tennis shoes looked great and while I was pressing down on the end of the shoe on her prosthetic leg I said, "Just tell me where your toe is."
Geez Megan laughs loud.
More later but I just had to share some photos today.
