Paul and J.P. Norden each lost a leg in the Boston Marathon attack four weeks ago. The brothers, who have always been inseparable, said worse than having their limb amputated was being apart when they were taken to two different hospitals after the blast.
They now go to physical therapy together at Spalding Rehabilitation Center every day for three hours. They're learning to balance and do normal activities. They help each other adjust to their new reality, along with support from their family. CNN's Jason Carroll reports.
It's crazy how they both lost the limb on the same side. It is a dark time in their lives but it looks like they still have each other and family that care much for them. They will survive likely stronger than ever.
I wish you brighter future
