Journal entry by Jeff Estes

Hi everyone. I decided to share a couple photos to show what was repaired after the accident. I still don't know everything concerning my accident, but I think my pelvis was broken in four places. I don't know how many ribs were broken, but they plated five. The pictures give the general idea. 

I am now three months past the accident, and the pelvis doctor cleared me to put full weight on my right leg. I am now standing fully upright which hasn't happened since the accident. I am in the process of trying to walk - which I can do with a walker or someone waking beside me. This is a major praise. 

This past Sunday I was able to go to church for the entire main service and for the fellowship afterwards. It is the first full service I have attended since the accident. 

I am going to be experiencing soreness in a lot of new areas and in many of the same places for some time, but I am improving.

Thank you for your continued prayers and for allowing me to give you a view of my innermost self.  :)

God is Good,

Jeff Estes
