Mrs. Cumberbatch was asked if she felt for the leg after surgery, she replied yes because it felt as if it was still there, she said she cried briefly once she realised that her movements would be limited.
I asked Mrs Cumberbatch if it was easy adjusting when she got home, she said she had to learn to use the walker, and she now had to be dependent on family members to do the cooking, cleaning and shopping. However, she lamented that the hardest part was not being able to go to church, as well as take part in the ladies meeting, She explained that the pastor told her whenever she is ready to come to church he will get some members to come for at home. I asked Mrs. Cumberbatch if there was ever a point where she stepped off forgetting she now only had the use of one leg.

She further expounded that she fell and the pain was very excruciating, she expressed that she was dejected and sat there and cried for hours even after her husband offered to help her up.

She admits that she continues to pray that she would not have lose her right leg, she hastens to add however, if it happens it is a part of God’s plan.
I wanted to...
