DAY 166

I have to start off tonight's post bragging on Riley. She won first place in UIL oral reading today. One of the judges said she should just skip high school and go straight to Hollywood!

Rick had a good day, too. He talked in speech again this morning. He answered about 6 questions pretty loud, well enough for her to understand his answers...she said he made her day. Still working on arm strength and range of motion in OT, and Chel'C is still focused on his neck, posture and walking. Dr. Wolcott discontinued his bloodpressure medicine, so one more med to be off of. He's been taking it ever since the accident...a precautionary thing...blood pressure and intercranial pressure are related. The highest his BP has been in the last 10 days is 120/79...pretty well perfect. We got a visit today from Matt McNabb and his mom and dad. It was great to see them...haven't seen Matt since August. Rick smiled and showed Matt how he can still "rope".

Today is my sisters b-day...Happy B-day, Pooh...thanks for taking care of my kids. Dig in your heels and refuse to get to "40" or you'll be old like Rick...and Sherry...sorry Big Sher, I think the gig is up, noone believes you're 29!

Present #3 A sign that says "BELIEVE" and a note that says in part, "'Believe' says it all for Jesus tells us many times exactly what to do; If you belive, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer". Matthew 21:22.

Got to get Rick in the shower...good night!



  1. Crystal,
    Sounds like Riley is an up and comer. The sky is the limit, she may be the first "Lady"
    president! Believe-do not doubt! I am glad to hear Rick had a good day. I hope and pray that you also have those good days and that you prepare for the days to come. Let's pray and agree, Father we come before you with praise and thanksgiving. Father we thank you for the healing that you have given Rick and the understanding and strength you have given Crystal. Father we come against any unseen adversary that might be coming in the near future. Father we pray for hearts to be open and that a supernatural benevolent spirit arise in the midst of this situation. Father we thank you for all you have done for Rick and Crystal and we thank you in advance for all you are going to do, in Jesus name we pray, and all of God's children said Amen and Amen. God Bless America we give thanks for our Blessed Saviour Later, Rick

  2. Tell Riley Rae, it is only an hour and a half to Hollywood from Aunt Cyndi's house, so she has room and board :) The pictures are adorable, in Hollywood she could be. Tell Rick I am so proud of him and love you all so much.
