Zoey continues to do well, amazing all of us! She refuses any pain meds and pushes herself to get up and get going every day.
Today her new milestone was to scoot on her bottom up and down the stairs. She still needs help because she needs someone to carry her walker up and down the steps, but she was smiling ear to ear at her ability to go up and down alone. She does take rests and puts her leg up but she likes to walk around the house frequently, telling me that she 'needs to practice.'
We found a pair of sweat pants that fit over her cast and it has been wonderful! It's so easy to navigate the bathroom with pants that have an elastic waist band. Zoey soon wanted to try handling that all by herself. She did it! Quite an achievement when your feet don't touch the ground and you have to balance on the seat, not get your cast wet, etc. She was very proud of herself. She needs help getting dressed, though, because she has to wear a belt that has straps that are attached to her cast. It makes getting dressed impossible for her because I have to unbuckle the straps and buckle them back up. She accepts it with grace though and doesn't complain.
She went to church on Sunday but not to her class. We didn't want any of the kids to accidentally fall on her leg or bump it, so she sat with us in church. All of the kids made "Get Well Soon," cards for her. So cute! She was thrilled.
We are also being spoiled by daily meals being brought to us. I'm starting to feel guilty about it! My mom went home yesterday so today was my first day flying solo with Zoey. We were so blessed that my mom was able to come and help out. We all miss her and wish we didn't live so far from family.

Zoey received a fun package in the mail today!
