Day 66, A Fairly Normal Day …

… and “normal” is a wonderful thing. While Caron and the older girls went off to their dress rehearsal for the upcoming dance recital, Amber and Ryan stayed home with me. A quiet day, eating lunch outside on the deck, and getting a little walking exercise with a trip down the driveway to get the mail. Ryan is a big help with Amber, making sure nothing is on the floor that she could trip on, getting her a drink, making sure she is comfortable.

It’s hard to fathom sometimes that the challenge in front of us is so huge, so critical. But, we have to just take one day at a time, and so having this kind of day is a beautiful thing. And we thank God for each day, and for all the people that are helping Amber – from the doctors and nurses, to those praying for her, to her little brother.

  1. How sweet to hear how Ryan is helping with Amber. You’re a wonderful family and so fortunate to have each other. Despite the predicted rain and cool temperatures, hope you can enjoy the long weekend and maybe cuddle up inside with popcorn and a movie!

  2. What an amazing bother and big helper. Yes, quiet and normal days are good days for sure!! Enjoy them. Love you all and miss you all so much

  3. How very thoughtful and loving of Ryan to be such a big help to Amber! Your challenge is great, but as you said, take one day at a time. Each day is a blessing. It was wonderful to see Amber at our Field Day, even if she wasn’t there the whole day. Her classmates were thrilled!! Keep up the good work Amber.
