The Decker Family

 
 


From The Deckers:

We wanted to take a minute to express our gratitude to Bob and Diana Ayers with Miracle Limbs for all of their help through the first three months of our “new life.” Just after the tornado on March 2nd I had the opportunity to talk to Diana and she offered me great advice on what we should expect over the next days, weeks and months.

She also advised us on making sure we found the right prosthetist for Stephanie and to make sure we interviewed several. When it came time for us to find a prosthetist they actually flew up to Louisville and helped us with the interview process.

They also were invaluable with the help they did with our insurance company and making sure we were aware and knowledgeable in all of the areas we previously knew nothing about.

Bob and Diana were able to help us in so many areas of  our journey that I know we would not be as far along as we are without their help and caring.

Thank you again to Bob and Diana and all of the people at Miracle Limbs for your help on our new journey into the world of being an amputee and prosthetics.

Stephanie and Joe Decker

 
Miracle Limbs was recently asked to assist the Decker family, victims of the horrific tornados that hit Henryville, Indiana in March 2012.

Mother of two children, Stephanie Decker lost both legs when she threw herself over her children in the basement as a tornado completely decimated their home.

Miracle Limbs flew up to Indiana from Florida to assist Stephanie and her family as she adapts to her new reality.

Stephanie is doing incredibly well.  She is already shrinking on the BK side and will be getting a socket change probably in a week or two (all within expectations). She had the graft surgery on the AK (Above Knee) side about two weeks ago. Dr. Smith says that so far it is healing great.

States Kentucky Prosthetics, “We fully expect her physician to release her for prosthetic fittings on schedule.  We have the Genium knee here in the office so that we can start with it as soon as Dr. Smith releases her.  Otto Bock is sending in one of their teachers to make sure that we have everything correct on the programming”.

We fully expect by June 15th, she will be walking independently. And then the world better watch out, because nothing will slow this lady down!
