An amazing young woman

That's my niece.  She's so strong, physically and mentally.  She is able to use both of her arms now.  The doctor wants her to hold off on using her left arm over her head until the clavical fully heals, but because of the surgery to it, she's able to use it well.  She is able to move herself from her bed to chair to the potty chair quite easily. 

Next week, she has surgery to remove her pins.  Once those are gone, life gets much better.  We have to be so careful not to touch her pins.  After the surgery, she'll be bedridden for two more weeks and then they will start physical therapy.  The physical therapist will be coming to the house to see her.

And since they really don't need us and the kids are bored, we're heading home tomorrow.  Grandma and Grandpa gave up their house so we could stay together and have been staying with Grandpa's sister.  I'm glad that they will finally have their house back to themselves.  The cousins are so busy with activities, sports, and school that they haven't had much free time.  And I still can't believe that we didn't have any snow!! 

We'll be heading out early in the am and driving for three days to get home.  I'm longing for my own bed and I know that the kids and I are anxious to see daddy. 


  1. Glad to hear she is doing so well.
    Praying for safe travel on your way home.

  2. Thankful your niece is recovering quickly. You guys are probably home by now, pray it was a safe trip. Let everyone know you've made it.
