So glad to hear he came through surgery ok!
Did they amputate above or below the knee? The reason I am asking is that I am a below knee amputee. My amputation was done when I was 3 due to a broken bone that would not heal. I don't know if it is true or not, but have been told it is harder for someone if their amputation is above the knee. I agree with you that at your brother's age, he really should receive counseling now, rather than later. If he is going to live with your mom and dad then they should also receive counseling. Do they have a pastor or priest they could talk to? My prayers will continue for all of y'all! You can PM me if you want to ask questions or to just vent. I will try to help if I can.
