Just a little update on how things are going. Sandra has her good days and bad, she is always uncomfortable and the pain varies. Her attitude is still amazingly positive but there are strange things she misses that non of us really understand. I was talking with a friend who is in his own valley right now and we both agreed that no matter how much people try to imagine what we and our families are going through they just won't understand, and hopefully never will.
So we are now over the 8 month point, I tried to explain Sandra's progress with a weight loss analogy. Imagine having to lose 100lbs, you work for 8 months eat all the right food, hire a trainer work out 4 times per week follow the process to a T and at the end of 8 months you have lost 5 lbs. Well are you doing better then 8 months ago? Yes, however you still have a long way to go, it gets discouraging and hard to keep pressing on.
I don't mean this post to be a downer but life isn't always a bowl of cherries.
On the up side I'm going to put up a video for you to see, it is the 1st voluntary movement she has had in her right leg. As you can see she can pull her right leg in I joke with her that she can do 3/4 of a snow angel. This is the muscle that scored a "2" in her last assessment, she needs a 3 for it to be functional.
Prayer request; Sandra will have an uneventful trip to Florida, Continued healing with the activation of her quad muscles, the few remaining pieces of equipment she needs will come in while she is gone.
