Annie Taking a Stroll!

We're trying something new here. Click on the video above to see Annie taking a walk at school in her Gait Trainer. Step by step, she's making a little progress every day.

I don't see a plateau anywhere near her. Isn't it fun to see how tall she is?

THanks for sharing. xxooo

Thanks, Gretchen & Terri. :) She's plugging along. Btw, the gal taking the video is her OT, Michelle, and the gal in front of Annie is her nurse, Moira. These ladies are making a tangible difference in Annie's life every day. Thanks so much for your prayers--Jesus continues to heal.

AnnieBanannie - You're the Top!

You're the top!
You're the Coliseum.
You're the top!
You're the Louvre Museum.
You're a melody from a symphony by Strauss
You're a Bendel bonnet,
A Shakespeare's sonnet,
You're Mickey Mouse.
You're the Nile,
You're the Tower of Pisa,
You're the smile on the Mona Lisa
I'm a worthless check, a total wreck, a flop,
But if, Annie, I'm the bottom you're the top!

I hope you don't mind, but I showed the video to Anne, the Epi-surg RN (she's my new office-mate) she was stunned! She said, Wow, that's almost a miracle!

yeh. "Almost" - we know better, don't we?

Gotta love what God's doing!

Oh wow... just wow! It is incredible to see how far she has come. Praying with you and looking forward to seeing what OTHER miracles God has for Annie!

Oh Jean- her smile- Annie has her beautiful smile back, a genuine smile with twinkling eyes. She knows she's being used by God for His purpose. And . . . good for your boys to call out God's favor on her. I pray that my boys are that insightful when they are teenagers. Out of infancy and onto toddlerhood- those brain synapses just keep connecting. I love keeping up with your family and wish we all had more time together. - God Bless you all, Maurita

Yes, it is so neat to see her walk... but even better yet I think is that you can tell she WANTS to! She does not have the "apathy" (or whatever the correct term is in this situation) that was there before! And she is interacting with you! SUPER SUPER. Yay God! Yay Annie! Yay Jean and all the Sullivans and helpful friends and medical people.
