Jeremy reports that there was good news in therapy today. The wounds on his left leg are almost healed-what a long way that has come in a week. Also, the therapists have told him that they expect to be fitting his right leg for a prosthesis by the end of the month. As I understand it, this will be a temporary prosthesis-one to begin learning on and to begin the fitting process-there will be adjustments made as necessary to come up with just the perfect fit for his permanent prosthesis. His left leg is not too far behind. It is unbelievable to me that just a few weeks ago we still felt as if his life was in jeopardy-now he will be learning to walk again. Talk about miracles...
Subtle reminders are around everyday to keep us aware of how lucky we are that Jeremy is still with us-he has defied the odds. Our hearts go out to those of you who have lost someone special. Our prayers are with you as yours have been with us.
I'll be updating again next Wednesday and I continue to read your comments each day and report them to Jeremy. Hopefully soon the man himself will be adding his own comments.
Wishes to all for a safe and peaceful 2006!
It is great to read that you are making such an amazing recovery thus far. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this next phase of your recovery. Can't wait to see you.
You're amazing!!!! We're so excited for you and the progress that you have made in such a short amount of time. We will pray that the rest of your recovery surprises the medical professionals as much as what you have accomplished thus far!! I know you've been working hard!

We just heard about your ordeal in the Christmas card from your parents. We were absolutely heartbroken when we read what you have endured, but were so thrilled to hear them speak of the courage and determination you have shown throughout this trial. You are on the prayer list at our church in Port Charlotte, FL and are in our daily prayers. I thank the Lord for the love and support you have received from your wonderful family and friends. This, along with the mercy and grace from your heavenly Father, will continue to sustain you and strengthen you daily. While our families are separated by many miles, we are with you in love and spirit. We look forward to hearing of your continued recovery and amazing progress.
Love and blessings,
Reg and Mary Jo Knarzer
You are, indeed, a lot tougher than I thought and an amazing amount tougher than me. I am extremely happy to read about any new progress you have made. You are a role model for all of us who read of your daily accomplishments. I am happy for every little thing I do daily and then thoroughly amazed at how small my accomplishments are compared to yours. Of course, I wish you did not have to go through what you have, but I am pleased with your attitude and fortitude. Keep up the progress!!
Thank you to Sarah and Colleen for keeping all of us informed about Jeremy and allowing us all to share our love and concern with you and Jeremy.
My thoughts and prayers are with you! I really want to see you so I will call and arrange a time that will work for you and your family. I will check with Chris and maybe we can both stop by. Keep up the good work. I know you have a long road ahead of you, but you have never been afraid of hard work. Let me know if there is anything that I can do. Feel free to call me at the hotel 581-9400 anytime. Linda Poore
