Pamela has her new raised shoe on and learning to play in it. Now she can get some use out of her polio ravaged leg that normally hangs, flops and dangles.
She plays in the park, on the swing and other things before walking to a bench to inspect her foot hiding in her shoe. Then its off for a long walk to the apartment where once inside she sits, takes off her shoes and socks and walks around.
Pamela is still getting use to her new leg braces. Today we find her on her bed before she transfers to a wheelchair. She collects her crutches and goes outside in the sunshine to show you how well she’s doing.
With old fashioned under arm crutches and a forearm crutch she displays her walking ability. There’s nothing like the slow drag of a polio effected food across the cement as she tried to stable herself to complete each step.
