I can not believe that it has been 3 weeks since Emmi came home with her first cast! Tonight we are reflecting on the past 3 weeks and are so thankful.
Thankful that Emmi just went with it. She struggled the first couple of days, but she never complained. She amazed us everyday with the new things she adjusted to, like spreading her legs wide to stand up so the cast wouldn't pinch her tummy. She even started using her cast to help hold toys under her chin, so she could gather and carry more.
We are thankful for the care that Emmi gets. The doctors and staff at the hospital have been nothing but amazing. We are thankful for a daycare that helps with Emerson's special needs. We also found out recently that she qualified for First Steps, a program that will provide her with assistant, in our home.
Thankful for our friends and family who have supported us in so many ways: taking care of Addi and the dogs while Emmi had her procedure, helping me go through clothes to find something that would fit over the cast, a homemade stuffed animal, a box full of numerous donations, some smaller size diapers, kind words, and of course all the prayers. There are not words to describe the kindness and generosity that people around us have shown. And we are so thankful!
