In April of last year, 40-year-old Kenneth Brumley was bedridden. He had been confined to bed for four years.
He, literally, had to be cut out of his home in Spring, Texas.
Brumley was taken to Renaissance Hospital where he underwent a series of bariatric and skin reduction surgeries.
He has now lost 500 pounds and is able to get into a chair.
Brumley plans to get to the point where he can walk out of the hospital and he hopes it will be in no more than 6 months from now. But he knows this will take some work from his part. His first goal is to be able to stand and take steps. Brumley does physical therapy on a daily basis.
He plans to get his life back on track by joining a church, getting involved in the community and even going back to school and work.
Brumley wants to be an inspiration to others and show them that you can overcome being morbidly obese.
