Progress everyday

I am happy to report that Mira is making progress everyday. We were able to go home for the weekend...ahh what a fantastic feeling! To be home with your family eating dinner together & sleeping in my own bed is one of the best feelings!! And we were able to go to church together ("Jesus' house" to Mira).
On Monday we came back to the HP house at Sinai. I must mention how fantastic this place is. The stress is removed as soon as you arrive. Amy is the sweetest lady, she has a true heart for the families here & she is very interesting to talk to. She was a missionary in Israel for several years before she came to work here, she is one of the managers of the house.
We met with Dr Standard yesterday, in great hopes of him taking her cast off... No such luck! He took X-rays which he said look fantastic, the cast will come off on 10/29. Then it will be a removable cast, that's the point when she stands a chance at a decent scrubbin'! We continue to go to therapy daily, they say is doing great, she is very cooperative! Her therapy cuts back to 3 times per week until the cast comes off, then we resume 5 days/wk.
Sadly, Mira has taught herself to be a fighter, determined, strong willed etc. at very young age. For circumstances like this you can see it.
We celebrated Kayla's 13th birthday yesterday here at the HP house. We ordered in pizza & Emily made a cake. We are thankful to God for allowing us to celebrate 13 yrs of Kayla!!
Due to the reduction in therapy the girls & I will be going home for several weeks. Also partially because Greg will be going on a mission trip to AZ to the Native American mission Field. Please pray for Greg & the team.
A few pics to wrap this post up:


  1. I am so happy to see Mira doing so well after surgery. I can't wait to see her up and going on her new legs. You are right. She is a fighter!

  2. Go Mira!! Look at you walking already. Keep smiling sweetie. Happy Birthday Kayla, hope you had a wonderful day! Lots of hugs. Tammy

  3. We miss you guys. Kilah asked me about the Green Walker today. I wasn't sure what she was talking about and then I remembered that Mira's Walker was green. heehee.
