A Good Day

Sumana is in her glory. Grampy and Grammy are here from Maine. They must make her hungry because she started eating last night and has been eating well ever since.(!!!) She did her exercises this morning, 6 pages of Math and went to physical therapy. Tonight she's at the last AWANA for the year. She still has a yucky cough, but no real change since Friday.

I thought I'd post some pictures to show how much progress she's made in a week. (Remember her surgery was a week ago TODAY. She was flat in bed for a full 48 hours and then has eased back into walking). She's progressed from a wheelchair to a walker to crutches in 5 days--woo-hoo!!!

We still don't have a confirmed date for her VEPTR surgery. I'm hoping July 2nd will work. Even though this is later than the 6 week delay needed between surgeries, I won't complain. After seeing how much strength and endurance she lost over the last week, I know she could use some extra time to regain what she lost.

We did make it to church yesterday. Sumana was soooo happy to see everyone again and I think she surprised quite a few with her presence. She went to kids choir, Sunday School, the first part of church and then helped Miss Natasha with children's church. What a busy morning!

  1. Look at you Sumana! I'd never know you had surgery a week ago:)

    The waiting for the next step is SO hard. I try every day just to stop wanting to fast forward through life! Keep up the great work Sumana!!!
