Last Monday, January 4th, you had your spica cast taken off. It was terrible seeing you scream for 30 LONG minutes while they used a scary tool to remove the cast. I cried. There was nothing I could do but finally, after the cast was off, I was able to see your legs! Honestly, it was like having you ALL OVER AGAIN because you felt like a "new baby". You were very sore for days. Any movement you made, well, you cried. If I picked you up the wrong way, you cried. I took you home from Dr. Vu's office to a very exciting daddy and brother. I let Triston hold you, he cried, he cried happy tears because he finally thought you were out of pain. Your legs were really dry so daddy gave you a very long bath in our kitchen sink. You were SO happy to finally have a bath after 3 long months.
A week or so later, you are not crawling yet, just pulling yourself around with your arms but that is o.k. Day by day, right?
I love you Gillian, you're such a trooper, such a strong girl and I can't imagine life without you! You are my sweet girl, I am so grateful for Jehovah giving me you!
