Good News

Matt has returned from a renewing trip to Florida. He went sailing in the mornings and snorkeling in the afternoons. He said he has made some wonderful new friends. Upon returning to the CFI today, Matt had his legs cast for his prosthetics. He may be up walking by tomorrow! His first legs will be "stubbies" which are short, kneeless and have backward facing feet for balance. Go! Matt!

Stay strong brave warrior, and stay strong, the Lammers Family - please know that there are always a ton of prayers, support and loads of Angel Hugs coming your way each and every day.
