Yes, everything is fine...just got busy yesterday. Travis Gardner stopped by to see us...Travis has spent enough time in hospitals, I'm surprised he'll step foot into one when he doesn't have to! Shauna met my Dad and picked the kids up and they got here about 7:30. Rick had a good day of therapy yesterday. In the afternoon they had group therapy where they split all the patients into 3 groups of about 10 and they rotated stations. Station 1 was Wheel of Fortune, Station 2 was bowling and Station 3 was exercise. The therapists are so enthusiastic and so encouraging to the patients. The baclofen pump was increased on Thursday morning and I could tell yesterday the difference. Again, the dip in his functionality...more tone is gone, more muscle has to work...and it really makes him tired.
Today was filled with visitors...Baker, Hattie and Blaine Chapman, Cassie DeFiori, Brenda & Jake Duckworth, Terri, Zac and Aubrey O'Neal, and Terri's mom Sue Ann. So good to see everybody...it feels like it's been ages! And good to catch up on everybody elses lives.
I checked in on the team roping, and Devin said it was a beautiful day and a good turnout. I wish we could have been there...just would like to hug everybody that showed up to do anything. It means alot, and I don't think I can even put into words how much it means to us. I told Rick the other night I said, "I think one or two people might show up for your ropin'" and he turned and looked at me with this smirky smile on his face and slapped his knee twice like, "your funny". Anyway, glad I was wrong!
Riley's comment for the day "the ones who succeed don't give themselves the option of failing."
Rick will not fail, but succeed and declare the works of the Lord.
