Recovery

Boo-Boo BearA little update on things around here: Hey, our Sweet Girl's doing much better! What a difference a week can make...

She's out of bed now and up and around more. It's been great to see her around the house again.  We still have a little way to go on getting her completely recovered. She tires easily and will have to take it easy, physically, for another month or two.  The plan is to get her physically able to handle school -- only 4 weeks away now. (wow -- where did the summer go?)

In our family, this will go down as The Summer That Wasn't. Talk about a bend in the road! (I still remember our little family meeting we had discussing plans and activities we were gonna do...) You never know what's around the corner.

That "Boo-Boo Bear" pictured there is the one she asked for when she got home from the hospital. It's the same one given to her by our very good friend, Scott, back when she first had her sledding accident. That bear's come full circle now -- there when our girl was badly hurt and struggling to recover from a scary accident... to here again to comfort her, hurt and recovering again -- but this time to fix the last of the damage done in that accident.

Counting blessings: the surgery is done and over with...the worst of the recovery is finished... that it's all downhill from here...can't count all the little earthly angels that made the effort to give our daughter some TLC. That's really good medicine when you're a teenager. By Christmas she will be fully recovered and totally pain-free. Can't wait!

Thanks again for all your prayers and good wishes. They meant so much. I heart ya! ♥

OK. Back to real life now...

I am so glad you are seeing improvements. Our summer hasn't gone exactly as planned either and school starts on Monday!! As in tomorrow! Been nursing sick kids all week. I love the Boo Boo Bear photo ;)

We all know how quickly Christmas comes! Before you know it, she'll be up and asking to go sledding again. :) So glad to hear she is on the road to recovery. And I am wondering if summers ever go as we planned them to?

Glad to hear she is doing well!

I was working on the little 'pay it forwards' (and you qualify, BTW, because I'm not counting my sister as one of the three, although she'll get a little something, too) and thought of you. Can't wait to get it to you in the mail...shouldn't be too much longer!
