Wednesday, April 14
Avery has been home for 2 weeks now. She makes us proud every day. She is an amazing girl, and she has come so far in such a short time.
After she got her full cast off on April 2nd and into a walking cast, I think she was still having some pain in her ankle. She didn't want to walk on it and would say it hurts if she tried, and "I can't walk," or "I don't know how to walk".
On Sunday morning when she woke up, she said, "Mom, my leg doesn't hurt anymore! I can walk!" She climbed out of bed and I took her hands and she walked out into the living room. Since then, she has been able to walk as long as she has a hand to hold, and we have not used her wheelchair at all.
She is still shaky and wobbly at times, especially when she gets tired, but she is coming along very well. I have never been so proud of my little girl, she is the strongest girl I have ever known. I know she still has quite a bit of recovering to do, but she has gone way above and beyond what was expected of her already and I couldn't ask for more.
