walking day

Brooke had a good day yesterday. with help of a physical therapist she was able to sit on the side of the bed, take 2 steps, and sit in a chair for 30 minutes. we had hardly any behavior problems with her yesterday. go Brooke! she has continued to say, "it's okay" throughout her day; however, yesterday she formed a sentence of "I wanna go". I love those random sentences that are just too far in-between.  yesterday afternoon she took a few bites of solid food. even last night she had a little bit of food.  last night seemed hard for her. she was moaning a great deal so they gave her extra medicine to ease the pain. she didn't sleep really well last night.  this morning they removed the draining tube from her back which made her pain increase. they gave her extra medication. bill was here last night and early this morning.. he told me as we switched out that she kept asking for me. that's just precious.  today is a big day. she'll start walking today. I can't wait. sorta like your one year old learning to walk-for-the-first time-can't-wait. after she walks she'll go into a regular room.  pray that the Lord gives brooke understanding, peace on every side and that we have little to no behaviors as we transition to another floor.  thank you!!
