Hopefully, we only have 10 days left of this cast.
I am trying to prepare myself for the possibility that at our appt. on the 18th they will say that the x-rays don't look good enough for it to come off but honestly, if that happens it is going to be a huge blow!
We are all really, really ready.
I wake up in the mornings having dreamt about her crawling and rolling around and being so super happy doing it.
We are so ready to cuddle her not trying to hug and snuggle around a huge, heavy, uncomfortable cast.
We are thankful, so very thankful that she can be treated and that this cast is making that possible but oh how ready we are to be done with it.
On the 18th we will hopefully/most likely get this spica cast off and also find out if the next step is a "long leg cast" or a brace and what either one of those entails. We feel like we can only go up from here but neither of those will be a walk in the park either.
I needed a way to process today so I decided to look through photos so here you go . . .
(these are not in order because I am not in the mood to fight with blogger)
These next photos were all taken 10 days before we found out that we were expecting David!
Our friend Betty and I on a hike in Sitka, Alaska
Soon to be Mama and Daddy
One of my very favorite places, Herring Cove
celebrating Betty's birthday!
This photo of Adrian with one of his nephews was taken 10 days before he came to Dallas to visit me for the first time when we were dating long distance. Ironically it was also taken 6 years to the day before his daughter was born and 3 years to the day before another nephew was born.
we had been married 10 days and were still receiving wedding gifts in the mail! Such fun!
This photo was taken 10 days before 2014.
in this photo David was 10 days old!
This photo was taken 10 days before we moved away from Dallas at our wonderful church there AND the outfit on David's sweet little friend now has been handed down to Cora!
These Easter pictures were taken 10 days before David turned two years old.
Okay, this is a stretch but I ran across this picture and it is so cute to me. This was taken 10 days and 2 years before Cora was born. :)
This photo was taken the same day and that was also right before we moved to Colorado AND I get to see this sweet friend next to me in just 20 days!! That is exciting!!
These two photos were taken 10 days ago!
These two photos were taken 10 days before David's first birthday and 10 days before we found our house in Colorado!
It's funny looking at the moving van photo. I can spy at least three things we don't own anymore, one that's been painted, etc. :)
Once again taken in Alaska, these photos were taken ten days before we would find out that this little boy was going to be a big brother!
10 days before his first haircut
10 days before our first married Christmas
So there you have it. Major props if you actually made it this far. This post was really for me to help me get some good perspective and have a way of reflecting.
I am thankful for a beautiful day today.
I am thankful for sweet parents who baby-sat our kids so that Adrian and I could go on a little lunch date and try out a new spot for lunch as well as a new coffee shop.
I am thankful that both kids are asleep right now (just being honest). :)
I am thankful that by now when I'm done writing this the day is done and now we only have 9 days left! Single digits!! Hallelujah!!
I hope you've had a good day!
