I've been going to outpatient therapy for a week now, and the supination of my left wrist (that's how far you can turn your palm up) has gone from 9 degrees to 41! I was so excited to hear my therapist's surprise at this. I've been extremely worried about my wrist healing, so it was great to hear something uplifting.

On the leg front, I started walking without my knee brace yesterday and it's going well. After I got my legs iced down for about 20 minutes post-therapy today, I was actually walking like a normal person. :)

I went back to my internship at IMA today. The drive went really well despite the fact that the closer I got to Indianapolis, the harder it rained. I missed my co-workers a lot; they are all truly fun to be around! I'm looking froward to getting a lot of editing done and hopefully getting more experience behind the camera as well.

Still looking hard for a job in northern Indiana (around Goshen) starting in August. If anyone knows of any openings, please tell me! I'd like to have a job since we'll be living rent-free, so I don't feel like a bum.

Keep praying.

New Ride, New Skills

We bought a brand new Scion xD for Kolin yesterday. His name is Thadius, but you can call him Tad.

He's the baby brother of my Sandee, a 2005 Chevy Malibu:

What a cute pair!

This morning, I took a shower by myself for the first time! Taking the shower was easy; it's drying off that's hard. But I had Kol help me. It feels nice to gain more independence everyday. :)

Keep praying.

Mia Lynn

My beautiful niece, Mia, was born 7.7.09 at 7:51 pm, 7 pounds 4.6 ounces and 20 3/4 inches long.

She is perfection!

Proud parents!

Hopefully there will be another picture like this in a year or two...but the baby will belong to US. :)

Sorry it's been forever since I've updated. Not much has changed on the healing front. My knee has gotten a lot stronger, so I no longer have to walk with the cane, which is nice.

Keep praying.

All is Well

I went to the doctor this morning and got nothing but good news. He took the external fixator off of my left arm

(this bionic-looking thing),
then looked at my new x-rays and said everything looked good, which was fantastic to hear, because if my knee wasn't healing properly, I would need to have surgery and be down for another six weeks - NOT cool! But all is well, thank God. When I'm at home, I'm allowed to walk around with my splints off in order to strengthen my muscles. All of my splints (that's right ankle, left knee, and left wrist) will be off FOREVER in two weeks, and I will be able to drive again! Yay! I can also head back to my on-campus jobs this Monday.

Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers thus far; they're definitely working! But, as always, keep praying.
