As always we must begin this Amy update with a massive thank you for all of your support! We are getting closer and closer to our goal of $50,000 and we are so incredibly thankful and overwhelmed. We chose that amount because it will hopefully buy us time to allow Amy to recover enough to handle staying at home by herself so I can go back to work. I can’t say it enough but we would never be able to do it without you guys.
Amy had physical and occupational therapy today. She’s continuing to get more movement in her right hand and arm, and can almost make a fist with her right hand which is a pretty big step. She’s also making progress when it comes to holding up her entire weight while standing. She’s still got quite a way to go before attempting to walk on her own, but she’s heading in the right direction.
As fortunate and lucky as we are for her continued improvement, there are still challenges. We want people going through something similar to know that challenges are all part of it, you can’t let them stop you. We want to share a picture of one of the struggles Amy has to deal with. Although it looks like she’s just resting on the floor (thanks to Parker for giving her some pillows), she had actually fallen off the couch and was stuck in this position until I was able to come back in to help her up. I’m so grateful that she doesn’t have to go through this alone, I can imagine how difficult that would be for her.
Again, thank you all so much for everything. You. Are. The. Best.
