Amber had an AWESOME day!
Getting ready this morning Amber chose her Supergirl pajamas, which basically set the bar for the rest of the day.
In PT with Ms. Lauren and Ms. Amanda, she blew their socks off by not only walking 100 feet with the walker and some assistance but when we went down to the gym on Floor 6, she walked UP and DOWN 4 steps, TWICE! Once assisted with Ms. Lauren and the last with me. 16 steps!
Then in OT with Ms. Caitlin, Amber MOVED her LEFT ARM and HAND! I kid you not! Amber’s been squeezing our fingers a little bit the past few days with her left hand but this was just amazing! She has a long way to go, like the way her left leg and foot were but, wow . . . just wow!
Amber’s Way: She’s Determined, Strong-Willed, Tough, and Ready To Get This Thing DONE. *~* She’s SUPER AMBER GRACE *~*
And to end the day, more great news. We got the word from Dr. Martin that Thursday — This Thursday, is the day Amber should be able to come home! Furthermore, how coincidental and appropriate that this Thursday is also Ascension Thursday; when Jesus’ body ascended into Heaven — He went home too!
Amber is on her way, fast and furious. The evidence is clear just how BIG her fighting spirit is — more than ever, especially with a discharge date only a few days away. Amber has proved which way she wants to go, and go she shall!
I will leave you with a fitting quote that was posted up in the Post-Op room last Thursday:
Good, better, best. Never let it rest.
‘Til your good is better and your better is best.
– St. Jerome
