A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Slow and Steady...

It is amazing that when pain diminishes, the healing process moves quickly to the forefront. Ryan's good report begins with the three full walks around the unit, the first one at 11:30am, when we "snuck" out of his room to meet his sister at the elevator. He then got two more unit walks in throughout the day (yay!) as recommended. 

The healing process continued to his second big thing today: speech and swallowing therapy.  Ryan's resolve to garner the much needed laser focus to talk and swallow was truly inspirational-bar none. And all this while he still has a tracheotomy and feeding (NG) tube to boot! But he has homework, and that is to continue to talk and drink the recommended fluids enough to have those two things removed. We will cross our fingers and be relieved when that occurs! 

BSoleille! The bright side of "slow and steady..."
