Straight as Straight can be

Deena got her splint off and her leg looks AMAZING!  She was so excited to see how straight it was; we all were!  

The three things she was really missing were baths, using her own wheelchair (she was in a transport chair with an elevating leg rest), and wearing pants.  The first thing she did when she came home was take a bath.  I'm pretty sure she played in there for an hour.  She was on cloud 9!  

Deena is officially cleared for weight bearing as she feels able.  She's been up for short periods of time and has remained pain-free.  It's going to take a little time to regain her strength, but she's going great.  

Other than that, life's been chugging along.  We've had company 3 weekends in a row, which was nice.  Though we've made some great friends in Tucson, the kids have been missing their Phoenix friends.  They enjoyed all the extra time with some of their best friends.  

The weather has cooled down a bit and we are loving the time outdoors.  Deena was grated a bike through Athletes Helping Athletes (more on that to come), so we are officially able to bike ride as a family, which is amazing!  

Deena just got her latest round of pamidronate and is doing great, with minimal side-effects.  She gets stronger and stronger every day.  We have a great nurse through Preferred who lets Deena help, which we are thankful for.  Deena wants to be a vet when she grows up, and I can totally see it.  She's such a smart girl!

Oh, and a few weeks back there were therapy ponies at the Children's Clinic.  Not only did the girls get to lead them around, but the ponies also wore tiny build-a-bear sparkly pink shoes.  It really doesn't get any better than that.  Life is good and we are so incredibly blessed!
