Leg Braces

Yesterday I went to Idaho Falls and was measured for leg braces.  It was quite the experience!  After being stripped to my unders, they cast both my legs from hip to toes.  Then they cut the cast off and will use those to build my braces.  Now, I wait.  Approximately two weeks.  Then when I got to try them on, I will get to stand.  It will be my first complete upright position in 16 months!  It will be between parallel bars and help, but it will be a milestone.  




My  braces will look similar to this but will be dark gray.
