Walking Tall

Well, as you can see from the picture, at least some of us are walking tall! But seriously, Lacie is doing great and has been out walking laps around the NSCU twice today, two laps the first time, and three the second. She got a sponge bath late this morning and was able to put some regular clothes on, which I think was a big relief. Her mom also combed out her hair and gave it some newfound style.

We are still waiting for a transfer out of the NSCU, which is supposed to occur later this afternoon. The NSCU is short-staffed today and they are justifiably giving more attention to some of their other patients - some of them are in pretty rough shape and most are older or elderly. There is one guy whose head is practically entirely wrapped in gauze - poor fellow! Fortunately, Lacie's nurse today, Linda, is one of the better ones, and she has been in good hands while we wait.

I just love this shot! And the post about the cross between Bert and Jeannie! Crazy funny!

Ok Lacie, I saw the X-Files in the video store, so we have to make a date! I am getting anxious! ;-) Can't wait.

How are the girls doing? I have not heard too much of an update on them. Maybe I will see them in church tomorrow. Jeremiah is preaching too....I remember praying over you last year like is was yesterday.

Peace be with you!

You look great! And 3 laps? Impressive, very very impressive. I don't think I ever did 3 laps while in the hospital.

Hope things continue to improve and that you're on a quiet road to recovery.
