2 Samuel 22:31-33
It is Monday, meaning back to work. Whitney has a full schedule for the next two weeks. Her psychologist called it a window of opportunity for her where she is able to have all her rehab under one roof. We are not going to be able to have as much detail on her rehabs as Whitney is wanting a little of her independence back. She was never a momma’s girl to begin with so she is ready for us to stoop hovering over her. Part of me is sad because I learned so much watching the therapists work (the teacher side of me), and I loved to see the improvements each session but the other part is happy because she is gaining her confidence and independence. For the next two weeks Whitney will have at least 6 hours of therapy each day. On Friday July 14th we will have her two week evaluation, a big meeting with all the therapists and doctors that will tell us where she is at in rehab and how much longer we need to stay. Whitney is working hard each day toward that goal. She is enjoying getting to know her therapists as it is a one on one session with each.
Because of the holiday tomorrow we were able to take Whitney away for the evening. We found a gas grill on the deck and I actually cooked a real meal. It felt so normal (except missing Sandra) sitting and laughing around the dinner table. Carly got Whitney laughing so hard that I thought I was going to have to perform the Himleck. After dinner a couple of Taylor friends came and it again felt so good to hear laughter and the girls talking. Whitney is looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow and of course the fireworks.
Hope you all have a great holiday with your families and friends.
