Today is my dad’s birthday, and he turned a whopping 49 years old. Never would I have thought we would have to encounter these kinds of medical battles at this young of age, but his youth is persevering and pushing him through the fight. Today I got an update that he spent 20 minutes standing up on his feet assisted by a harness. This is the first time he’s been on his feet since surgery! Progress is slow but happening! From what I hear he’s determined to regain his strength and is working extra hard during physical therapy to get all the exercise he can get. Good friends have been visiting and keeping him company, and I can tell that’s really helping keep his spirits up. Thank you all for the positive comments, they mean a lot!
After all of this I know we’ll never take another birthday for granted. Happy birthday dad!
