Wow, I can’t believe it is here.

Ella had her last occupational therapy and physical therapy appointments today. The next time will be new therapists in the Denver area.

The OT gave a great discharge summary and made note of Ella’s progress since he started seeing her in late February. It is a amazing to see how much progress she has made since the hospital.

The PT was cute and brought Ella a few books over the past couple of sessions. It was neat to see her “tune in” to Ella, especially over the last week. We liked her from the beginning because she is very perceptive and works well with infants. But she just got to the point where she was picking up on Ella’s cues. So likewise, Ella was starting to enjoy her too. The last session was good, complete with the Bun smiling and being playful with her.

As I type this, Josh is cooking a later dinner. He still has lots of work to do tonight to prepare for the trip early tomorrow morning.

Doug is coming up shortly to spend the night, so he is ready for the early drive. Along with him, Jeanie is in the car too. I’m not sure that if I mentioned that she was so sweet to offer to come up and spend the entire weekend with me. If you remember, she is the one that gave the Bun the Forget-Me-Not bracelet. And I know it was quite the sacrifice considering that she has a husband & 5 kids along with the fact that I have a nearly empty apartment with no furniture! So, the Bun and I will have a girls Memorial Day weekend with Jeanie!

I will plan on keeping everyone updated on the blog as far as Josh’s drive and his safety. Please pray that he and Doug will remain safe while driving and flying across the country.

We’re so excited…it is finally here. The Bun has no idea what she is in for…

I will be praying for the Lord’s Angels to be surrounding Josh and Doug as they do their travelling. I will also be praying for you to have a stressless weekend with the girls. I am glad that you have a friend to be there, too. It can be hard on any “new” mom to be all by herself for that long; let alone a mommy with a Bun of high maintanance. I am sure that the Lord will provide plenty of new and great people in Denver. These wonderful people that you have had come into your lives, as you know, has not been by any “accident”, for the Good Lord knows your needs and will provide. Your faith has kept you going this far and has been an inspiration for many. I am glad that you will keep us updated on the travels of your family. I will also miss my daily dose of you three when that time comes. But, for now, I will be enjoying my mornings (sometimes late nights lol) with your family. My sister lives in Colorado Springs and would like for my sister to read about you and how your faith has brought you so far. Thanks for sharing your lives with all of us. God bless you. btw: I am not sure if I will ever meet your family, but look forward to that day (hopefully a long time from now for all of us) when I see you at the Lord’s side. LoriAnn, Tom, Tyler, Zackary, Seth and Jonny
