Comforts of Home

Thank you for warm fuzzy blankets and soft comfy pillows – things to make sure we had some semblance of comfort during a very unsure time.


By our second night at the hospital, we had been given a couple of nice soft pillows and several fuzzy blankets to keep me warm on the waiting room couch.  I rotated between a stiff hospital recliner in her room (couldn’t take the fuzzy stuff in there) and this couch for two weeks before we got a room at the Ronald McDonald House.   Thank you for making sure we stayed warm and cozy during those difficult nights.

First Day of School

I finally get to post a first-day-of-school picture.


Brianna started back to school on Tuesday.  She will go to school half days on Tuesdays and Thursdays and will continue rehab the other three days of the week.

This was a very big deal for Bri.  She has been looking forward to this for a long time.  It’s hard to believe that it has been 11 months since she has been to school.  Almost a year!  She said that it’s great to be back and her next goal is to work up to two full days each week.

It was very emotional for me.  I cried three times; twice before I dropped her off and one time after I left her there.

Thank you Lord for this miracle!
