 I BROKE MY LEG, NOT MY SPIRIT
Edzen Espina    10:32pm May 20 2019

Hi everyone,

I'm on my 12th weeks of healing. Still on a toe-to-knee cast with 50%-75% WB. along side with all these, I'm on my 8th session with a team of Physical Therapists in our University. I'm doing a lot upper extremity and core exercises. I'm also doing gait training, walking, climbing up and down the stairs with crutches. After series of therapy sessions, I no longer use he wheel chair. I can endure longer distances walking with WB, climbing up and down the stairs WB with crutches. These improvements made me really happy for I can do more things independently now. I'm scheduled for my last recast and 100% WB this June 1st. I got a an art therapy session with a young artist in school who made a "cast tattoo" on my cast. I'm fervently praying that everything will be okay and my bones will heal perfectly. I now report to the office and go to my therapy sessions with minimal assistance this time. God and everyone around me are doing tremendously great for my healing process.

Happy recovery everyone!
