Doggy Paddle

This morning started out a bit rough.

About thirty minutes after Makenzie had breakfast, without any rhyme or reason Makenzie puked. At first I got really upset but knowing that Makenzie is gaining weight I was able to let it go and chalk it up to a bad morning, congestion, or something totally random.

Not fretting over this kind of stuff has become an art that has taken me over 3 years to learn. It is so hard when you have a child with medical issues to not obsess over every little thing, throw up your hands, get frustrated, cry, curse, and let it ruin your whole day. I still do all of the above but not near as much as I used to and this is a blessing!

Lunch and dinner went without incident.

After lunch I gathered all of my kids and a couple of neighborhood kids and headed to the pool. We met Makenzie's physical therapist there for some water therapy. Makenzie did SO well! Every single time I get Makenzie in the water she does something new. AMAZING!

Makenzie is learning how to roll over and keep her legs down in the water. Today during our session Makenzie pushed off of the step, jumped off of the step, walked RAN on the bottom of the pool, splashed her brother, and chased him all over the pool. Makenzie kicked like crazy propelling herself after him with only a finger prompt at her shoulders. She laughed the whole time.

She was so loose the rest of the day. She kicked and moved all night even rolling over almost falling off the couch! Good thing mommy can think fast! LOL

God is so good and I am such a proud mommy!

Believe... Prayer Works!
