Chris I know your pain sweetie..and I also know that doctors can says alot of things that you dont like. I am now 25 years old. I was a victim when I was just 14 of gun violence. I was a innocent bystander myself. I am very thankful today for my life and my 2 children. The doctors told me I would never be able to have kids and when I do walk I will have a limp. My point to you Chris is to STAY STRONG AND POSITIVE I KNOW IYS HARD...BUT IF YOU STAY STRONG AND YOU KEEP THAT FAITH AND WILL POWER TO WALK BABY YOU WILL!!!!! When those doctors say oh he will never walk...sat ok..its a challenge..let me work on it...God is right by your side..I use to wonder why me lord what did I do..But it wasnt his he helped me along my recovery journey and it took a very long time but I am here. Last year I had to have another surgery due to my condition that I have. I have an artifical femoral artery(your main artery that pumps blood to your heart) It was clooted pretty you know the doctors even told me they dont even know how I managed to make it that long..They also told me that they cant replace it again//that they would have to ampute my know what I said no sir bob not I ..God will see me through it..And thats what you have to remember sweetie GOD WILL SEE YOU THOUGH THIS JOURNEY...And I am not going to lie to you as you already know there is pain involved...physcially, mentally i also had spritually...But thats OK casue it will be alright..If you ever want to talk I am here like a long lost friend..I am sharing my story with you for encouragement in your journey of recovery..Much Love to you and your family!!!! We are all gods children and I love you!

Dear Chris, Our thoughts and prayers are for you. I know this is a challenging time for you,but hang in there...I was advised by a doctor when I was younger,to avoid having children,due to a bad back,but after several years and prayers,I now have 2 children.In other words,I know some doctors mean well, but listen to your heart and the Lord and don't limit yourself. May God bless you and your family.
