Here are some pictures that document the past year. While some of this is not "pretty", this is the reality of where we have been. I can not seem to load the video portions..so I will try to post that another time.
Me holding a special rock from my Grandma. Asking God to be with me through all of this.
Alive after surgery, barely! Not feeling or looking good. I laid like that for a long time, barely opening my eyes because every time I opened them, I threw up. My neck and jaw were extremely sore. I was in a lot of pain. Glad that's over! :)
Cruising the hallways of rehab with Jack.
After I regained some use of my left arm, it remained bent up and "guarded" most of the time. I still have to think about relaxing at times..but I can relax it. :)
Tired after a long day of rehab, thrilled to be visiting with my boy who I missed so much! My best smile at the time.
Working in the rehab gym...after hours.
My first time "out" alone with Jack. I had to be strong enough and alert enough to keep him safe outside of our home. A very big achievement for me!!
Our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. The only picture we can get with all of us.
