I had the privilege of spending the weekend with James and his family in Eugene. Unfortunately some of it was spent in the hospital. While already in a cast on his left foot James had a seizure while balancing all his weight on his right foot. When he fell he twisted sharply and severely sprained his right ankle. His mobility went to zero and now he needs to be carried from place to place.
I was impressed to see James' heart and his desire to heal. He worked hard the rest of the weekend to take his medicine, keep his foot raised, ice the swelling, and not put any pressure on it.
While I had hoped to connect with James without having to see his pain I was put right in the middle of the drama that is his and his family's life right now. I walk away a better person because of my connection with them.
I know that the upcoming surgery and recovery is daunting, yet James is going to make it!
