Back in the Water

We took Lily in the jacuzzi this weekend for the first time since her injury. We’ve been talking about doing so for a while, now I wish we hadn’t waited so long. We had some friends over and all the other little girls were in the jacuzzi so I asked Lily if she wanted to […]

March Already?

It’s hard to believe it’s March already and that we have lived nearly all four seasons since Lily’s injury. We are in our 9th month post injury (not that I’m counting) and she continues to progress.

Catching Up

Just wanted to post an update for you all–I know I am not very consistent. I apologize, I just want to have new news when I post so you continue to be interested in Lily’s journey. My biggest fear is that Lily is “out of sight–out of mind” and the prayers will fade. She continues […]

Therapy, therapy and more therapy

Healing with Horses Shea Center

A couple weeks ago we visited the horses she used to ride down at the stables. That was magical. She had a huge smile when she saw them. She recognized them right away. At one point, I think she was having a telepathic conversation with one of them. It’s amazing how “in tune” horses are […]

Six Months Today

It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon (like today) when 6 months ago our lives changed forever. This day has been weighing heavy on my heart and head as it has crept up on us. I can remember vividly the chain of events like it happened a mere 5 minutes ago ( I know I will […]

An Amazing Girl

Today was a a great day! As everyone knows Lily has been working extremely hard . . . everyday. Some days for up to 4 hours! Well today was no different but she had a breakthrough session. During her 3-hour therapy session she was able to finally hold her trunk and her head for an […]

Today we give thanks for all of our blessings. This year we have experienced such heartache and grief yet we have been so blessed at the same time. We are grateful that Lily is alive, that we are together again at home, that we are healthy, that we have a roof over our heads and […]
