Day 13- Walk A Holic

I didn't expect today to go very well (in my head), as yesterday every strut was turned and for whatever reason (maybe that I'm continuously breaking her leg) the next day has been a sore one.
To my delight, she woke up this morning and was walking all over the place. We went to PT and she again walked all over the place. She loved seeing Don today as she got to play baseball, dress up, ride a rubber ball like a pony while playing catch with a ballon, fly on a rubber ball like superwoman (even upside down) as well as some tickle time with the stimulator and stretching. Best part was she got to show off for Grammie and her big sister!
After PT, Mom, Maddie, Em, Teagan and The Riso Gang loaded up and went to the aquarium. From what I hear she was walking there quite a bit as well. They couldn't wait to tell me how the shark bit the turtle when they got back! Grammie got her nails done, Dad got some work done and all was good in the hood!
They played outside for awhile with the neighborhood kids- Em walking around and even rode her scooter a bit.
Boppa manned the grill for dinner and the kids had a pizza party in the backyard with some friends they made across the street.
Don gave her a great report on her progression which made me happy. To me, today was a turning point as there weren't a lot of whimpers of pain or asking to be picked up after every few steps. We'll see what tomorrow holds... Meme- if you are out there somewhere you better be showing up soon- Em's been looking for you the past 2 days. I also need a seamstress photo to post! Everyone's now asleep and I'm going to turn some struts! Yippee...
