We wanted just to send a final update as to where we are at the end of 2009 and call it quits on the blog. You can always feel free to email or call.
Thank you so much again for all of your prayers and kind notes and gifts over the past few months. Tomorrow (December 20) Grace turns 26 and it will be exactly 10 weeks since the fire at our house. We are sooo thankful to our Lord and Healer and how He has brought us to this point after a scary few weeks at the beginning. We hope that this blog and the communication we've been able to have has been an encouragement to ya'll in case you ever have to go through something like this. There will be troubles in this world, but if you know Christ you have a rock to cling to.
Grace is doing really well, she has full use of her feet again in terms of walking anywhere, riding a stationary bike, and even driving again!! Her breathing is totally fine as I know that is a question I get a lot. She has a little rasp in her voice but it's getting better each day and doesn't sound bad at all. She has enjoyed being able to sing a little more each day and get the ability to hit different notes back. Last week she got passed from weekly check-ups to every 3 MONTHS!!! We are so thankful for that and she is getting ready to head back to work at HOPE International here in the new year. As you know she will wear the pressure garments on her feet and shorts (like biker shorts) for a year. That is mainly for the scaring so it doesn't happen.
Thank you again so much for your thoughts and prayers through all of this!!!! Here are some pictures of what her feet look like after many weeks of healing already. The pictures were taken just last week. We'll also have some pictures since outside right now it's a BLIZZARD!! We are getting snowed in on Grace's b-day weekend! Pretty fun!!
