Day 34, Stand Up & Cheer!

After a bit of a rough start to the morning — Amber threw her breakfast and supplemental feed up (her sibs shared some type of coughing/mucus germ) . . . She persevered. PT with Lauren and crew showed us just how bad Amber wants out of here. Not only did she kneel in a high kneel position (and at some points unsupported), she STOOD UP to stand against her bed with Lauren and Shannon supporting her! Yes, stood up and stayed that way for a few minutes!!! After that, after all that hard work, she literally crawled up into bed!!!


Once situated back in bed, Amber had a lovely visit from a Volunteer named Michelle and her 14 year young dog named Carina. Carina got in bed with Amber and Amber was in her glory!

After some lunch of mac and cheese and spinach (still on a spinach kick — getting strong from it (and it’s obviously working!)), and bit of chocolate munchkin for dessert, it was time to go outside for some Vitamin D.

Little miracles and blessings everyday. Thank you God, Mary, and Jesus — Amber’s strength is heightened by you. And thanks to you; our families, friends, aquaintences, and even kind folks that don’t even know us (officially anyway) — your prayers and positive thoughts . . . we feel them! Our love to you all! 💜
