TGIF! Glad to have another week behind us...that means we're one week closer to going home! Rick was a trooper today as always. His walking this morning was really good...good gait, speed, and control. His ST made it back today, but I'm not sure what all she worked on with him...she didn't let me know. I did work with him on some writing. He made capital A's that weren't too bad, but his lower case A's did not make a passing grade! He also wrote his #'s 1-10 and they were all legible. We had more visitors today. Don and Susan Grant from Vernon stopped by "on their way to Fort Worth". I don't know if y'all have looked at a map lately, but Anna is actually NOT "on the way" to Fort Worth. It was so great to see them...and Susan baked cookies and rice krispie treats for us. More cards and letters arrived today as well and are such a good reminder that God has angels here on earth. The other thing we (the kids and I) keep telling each other is "this won't last forever". That's something that Lauri Colbert told Riley one day this summer. Riley was asking her a lot of questions and Lauri said, "I don't know the answers to all your questions, but I do know that this won't last forever."
The kids will be here tomorrow...yea! So excited to see them. I miss them terribly. And every time I see them I think..."how did you change that much in a weeks time?". But, the kids believe that the Lord will heal their Daddy and understand that it may take some time, and all of this sacrifice will pay off in the end.
Please pray specifically for the baclofen pump placement to go well, and for it to be the answer to our prayers. The Lord sees the good people and listens to their prayers. 1 Peter 3:12
Thanks again for everything.
