Today was really good. Rick did well in all his therapies AND we got to see Julia his OT from Baylor. She came out with a group from Baylor that was touring Pate. It was so good to see her...I miss the Baylor crew ALOT! Rick also got a little something extra today. He got to see the therapy horse this afternoon. We had actually already come back up to the house when one of the techs noticed that the horses were here. So we went back to take a look. One of the patients that is discharging on Thursday actually got to ride. Balie Inglish White came to us and got to meet "Hank" as well. "Hank" is pretty impressive. He is a 4 yr old double bred Hancock horse that is so extremely gentle and willing to do whatever is asked of him that's it's unbelievable. Rick didn't try to jump out of his chair or anything, but he did certainly seem interested in him. He kept pulling on his nose as if he was looking at his teeth...maybe he didn't believe he was 4 either!
We talked to the kiddos who have been staying with my mom and dad the last 4 nights because my sisters girls are sick. They are doing well...really missing us, and we of course are really missing them.
Jesus will heal Rick...he will heal him in every way.
To grant consolation and joy to those who mourn in Zion-to give them an ornament of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a heavy burdened, and failing spirit-that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified. Isaiah 61:3
