    'It's been so hard and she's been here the whole time'

    'It's been so hard and she's been here the whole time': Amazing love story of bomb disposal expert who lost arms and legs in Afghanistan blast and the girlfriend who has been at his side during remarkable recovery

    * Taylor Morris, 23, underwent quadruple amputation after being seriously injured during deployment in May
    * Returned home to a hero's welcome in Cedar Falls, Iowa less than three months after being wounded

    Looking glamorous in evening dress, the picture of this happy young couple at a friend's wedding is remarkable - when just a few months earlier, the soldier was lying in hospital after having his arms and legs amputated following an explosion in Afghanistan which almost killed him.

    The astounding progress of 23-year-old Taylor Morris, a U.S. military bomb disposal expert, is testament to the unwavering support of his family, friends and girlfriend Danielle Kelly - who has been by his side every step of the way.

    New photographs, taken by a friend in August, show just how far the Navy specialist has come since he almost died after stepping on an IED on May 3 this year.

    Unwavering: Taylor has said the person who deserves his Bronze Star is his devoted girlfriend

    The touching images show Taylor being carried up a flight of stairs on Danielle's back and the couple working together on his rehabilitation exercises at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington D.C.

    They are also pictured last month at a friend's wedding in their hometown of Cedar Falls, Iowa, beaming at the camera and slow-dancing alongside friends.

    Images also show Taylor visiting the White House on a day to honor veterans and lining up with fellow groomsmen at the wedding with the use of his new prosthetics.

    The pictures were taken by the couple's friend and photographer Tim Dodd. According to his blog, while receiving a Bronze Star with Valor at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Taylor paid tribute to Danielle saying: 'If I had hands, I’d take this Bronze Star and pin it on Danielle.

    'It’s been so hard and she’s been here the whole time.'

    The homecoming on August 30 saw the residents of Cedar Falls line the streets with American flags to welcome the injured hero home.

    After attending the wedding of friends and visiting family, the couple then returned to Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington D.C. to carry on with Taylor's rehabilitation.

    They plan to return home to attend a fundraiser on October 19 which is being organized via the Taylor Morris Community Support on Facebook.

    On May 3, Taylor was leading a team of U.S. Army Special Forces to a classified location near Kandahar province when he stepped on an Improvised Explosive Device, which went off directly underneath him.

    Remarkable recovery: Taylor was fitted with prosthetic arms and legs in May and is well ahead of schedule with his progress

    Since his story was featured on The Chive in May, readers have raised more than $250,000 for the young man to help him buy his dream home and plan for his future.

    ‘As soon as I stepped on it, I knew,’ he told John Resig, the co-owner of the website which first told the story.

    ‘There was a moment, then I heard the blast. I felt the heat. I knew I had lost my legs. As I somersaulted through the air, I watched my legs fly off.’
