The Next Chapter...

Once Cindy has her stitches and staples removed (2/22), she will begin the next chapter in her life...walking again.

Our daughter-in-law, Katie, Cindy and I visited the location where Cindy will have her prosthesis fitted and where she will do her physical therapy to learn how to walk with her new leg.

Pictured is Karen, who will work with Cindy. She is an amazingly nice person and has had a prosthesis since she was 13. The place makes you feel very welcome and warm...and encouraged. Pictures adorn their walls of patients that are missing limbs. Each is competing in a physical activity...which includes surfing, running, biking...and even pitching a baseball game with an artificial leg! Karen (above) just came back from a ski trip with her two daughters. In other words, there is nothing that a person with a prosthesis can't do if they set their mind to it.

Cindy is scheduled to begin working with them very soon...she is healing that quickly!

I'll update the blog again as we begin the new journey toward Cindy's first steps.


  1. Hey Cindy...all I can say is...have you ever heard the song "Beautiful Soul" by Cindy Campo?

    If a search, go to her website and listen to the is you...all you.

    All I got to say.

    "You are a Beautiful Soul."

    Love you!

  2. Awesome update. Cindy, you look beautiful! Can't wait to hear all about the cool new leg you'll be adopting soon. :)

    We love you! :)

  3. Cindy, you look great, as always.
    Katie, you are amazing for all you continue to do for Cindy and Rob. You are such a wonderful part of our family.
    Rob, we are so blessed to have your love and dedication in making us all feel a little closer to all of you. Thank you for the updates. So greatly appreciated.
    We love you all! <3
