Ella had a good day.

We were bummed that we had to take Terri to the airport…we wanted her to stay! We miss her already….sigh. But, the Bun enjoyed the car ride and then I took her on a short errand on the way home. As you can tell by the smiles, she just loves being outside the house and hanging out in her stroller.

Her PT session was good too. We are trying to get her to bear weight on her forearms and elbows. Each time we tried to “sneak” that move into her exercises today, she would melt down. Fortunately, her recovery time was not too long, but the PT left me with some exercise sheets to see if I could try the weight bearing exercises in our alone time with Ella.

We’re looking forward to the weekend where we can rest and get some chores done around the house. Moreover, we’re getting ready to go on vacation this next Friday. Since Ella is stable, we want to take the opportunity to go visit family, especially Josh’s grandparents. They have never had the opportunity to meet their great granddaughter. It will be a long drive, but hopefully Ella will hang tight for the road trip!

I’m entering the weekend with a thankful heart – thanking the Lord for wonderful friends who are providing prayers, love and support during this season of life. It means so much. Once again I’m reminded that He always provides what we need to get through the valleys of life.

Psalm 36:5 (Today’s NIV)
Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.
