New Leg is coming!!
It has been a really long process to go from Teme's amputation to an actual "leg". But...we are well on our way. March 22 we met with Clark Prosethics to create a cast of Teme's stump. From this they ordered his gel sock/protector. April 22 the gel protector was back and we met to create a cast over that to create Teme's socket. Today he tried out the first version of his socket. Hopefully Friday we will meet again to try out an updated socket and Teme's lower leg components. Everyone expects Teme to fly through the learning to walk process!
