His Mercy

"His Mercies Are New Every Morning"

A Thought

In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

Faith

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Reconstructing Erika

Erika continues to be "under construction". :)
Her Dr. visit went great and she was able to show the Dr. the problems she is having with getting up from the floor. It doesn't happen. She can scoot on her back to the couch, and then wiggle up the coffee table with her back and neck, but that isn't so comfortable.

The Dr. viewed the video clip and said he felt they could do something to make her quality of life so much better.
Now, for a while, it will make it worse for all of us. :( It will require a body cast for 6 weeks, then, therapy to get walking again. After that, the sky is the limit!

She is very motivated to get it done. It will interfere with swimming plans for summer, but that is ok, it just has to be.
There will always be next summer.
And, swimming. Who knows, maybe she will learn to swim.

What a brave girl.
