Things Are Going Great!

Bailey continues to walk around to wherever I drag her. She still hasn't used her wheelchair at all. She can feel her strength improving. She can now climb our stairs at home without holding on to the banister. She comments all the time on how much better she feels than before surgery. It is so exciting to see her so happy and healthy. After we got home, she started having trouble eating - she would take a few bites and get nauseous. The last half of yesterday and all today have been much better! She's eating a "light" full meal. She's getting there!

We had one of her teachers come yesterday to help her with homework. We haven't talked to her doctors yet, but we're hopeful she can go back to school after the first of the year. I'm sure it depends on the progress of her cardiac rehab and school work, but that's our vision right now. Wow! Back to school, back to work . . . wouldn't that be something?

Rissy had a pajama party after school today - they got to watch the movie "Meet the Robinsons". She had a lot of fun doing that. And Josie is at the Middle School sock hop right now. We thought we'd bop over here to the library before we pick her up so I can use their computers for the update - ours is still out of commission.

Well, a big window just flashed on the screen that says the library is closing in 30 minutes, and Riss still wants to check out a book, so I'd better sign off.

Have a great day everybody!
Angie

Angie and Bailey,

I am so glad to hear that things are going well. I was hoping for an update tonight. Bailey I am so glad you are gaining your strength back. It must be wonderful to walk without wondering if you need your wheelchair and walking up the stairs without the banister. It makes us so much more appreciative of things that so many people take for advantage. I hope you continue to get stronger and stronger. I am so glad that things are continuing to improve.

Take care!
