An update on goings-on: I'm doin MUCH better, better than any of the doctors expected. Your prayers are working and I can't thank you guys enough! My hand is almost completely healed and I'm officially in the clear come February 10th! As for my legs, I'm still in a wheelchair but I can finally stand and walk a little bit with the help of a walker. I still have quite some way to go though.
If anyone would like a more reliable way of communicating with me, my tumblr is also Fischotterchen
