Journal entry by Barbara Haropolous


Ben's right arm is just about fully healed, and his left is getting closer! The doctor gave him permission to lift up to 20 lbs and resume working out. He's been doing the therapy exercises, and building strength. He said that ben could skateboard, just not hit tricks he wasn't good at. I admit, I balked a little ;-)

The doctor also said he could go back to work, very light duty. He still has about 4-6 weeks of full healing to get to, so he will probably stay home through July and into August. The best news was that he doesn't need to be seen again unless needed!

What could have been a devastating accident has been nothing near that. I praise the Lord for protecting Ben and healing his body. I thank you all who have been praying for him and us. God is good, ALL the time! 

So, this will be my last entry in the "Ben's Great Skateboarding Adventures of 2020"
