5 weeks later

This is Umme five weeks after being hit by a train. You can hardly believe it!

Umme has made an amazing recovery, he was walking on three legs only 4 days after the accident an started using the injured leg after less than a week. Umme was in terrible pain during the first 48 hours after the accident and I was ready to let him go but only a day later he had turned around and we could see how he was determined to survive.

You can see how he is not putting his foot on the floor, putting all his weight on the other leg, but when he is walking you can hardly tell that he is limping. The leg isn’t hurting but it is of course weak, you can easily see how much muscles he has lost. The scar on his thigh is almost the only visible memory of the accident and he is a bit frighten of larger vehicles that comes in full speed, he hides behind mummy when we’re about to cross a street and a bus runs by…

And last but not least – since the train accident our family has grown bigger – our baby son Ivan was born on March 3rd!
