Tori Post Surgery Update

Good Day and Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Tori's surgery went well and she is back in PT. I have added some videos today so you can see the progress.
  • Tori getting her cast off:
  • Tori in the new therapy machine:
  • Having some fun in PT:
  • Working her right leg to strengthen it:
  • No Pain No Gain:

You can see how hard the work is for her. She fights hard. It is tempting to want to quit. The hope is she could walk on her own without the walker cane. Pray for stamina for her please. THANKS SO MUCH!

This morning we played a card game called "May I." For those who have regular interaction with our girl you know how she loves cards. Tammy won. :}
Tori continues to use new words and I see her level of cognition slowly improving all the time. She and I went to the mall last night to walk around. We got a hot chocolate, bought some socks she wanted, picked up "Dance 2014" (game she had to have for her wii), got mom a gift for Christmas and cruised in and out of a lot of stores where they play music she likes. It was a great time. She is a free spirit still and lots of fun. She openly dances in public when she hears a song she knows or likes. 

There is a long, long way to go but we are thankful to be able to see her future unfold. 
Tam and I are grateful to see her so well. 

Thanks for walking with us these last 3 years. WE KNOW your thoughts, visits and prayers have been the major contributors to her journey. 
We pray you and all of yours experience the peace and love together as you look ahead into 2016.

With Gratitude, 
Tim, Tammy and Tori
