Pinky Encore

Hi my dear friends. Thought you would like to hear what I have been up to. Not too much except working hard to get strong enoughto come home. I am getting depressed because I am not geting better faster. Today I pooped in my pants and I know I can not come home till I can get this under control. Holly and steve are so good to me. This past weekend we ventured out for a small day trip. We went to an artist town about fourty min away. We brought the poty with us...I hate wearing dippers, so it was fun pulling over four times. You will see from the pictures that the old pinky is back. I have made my coloring book. It will soon be up for all of you to see. I am really proud of it. I can not believe it has been almost a year since i have seen all of you. Some times it seems like it has been ten min and some times like ten years. i keep thinking it is still some bad dream i am caught in. i am very lucky though because with my injury i should only be able to move my head. It is all your prayers that have got me this far. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have to go and get to work. I have to practicing standing for longer periods of time. talk soon ,love to all

    I have spent the better part of my morning reading your story from beginning to end, and I'm astonished. What a journey, what strength! If any person can overcome these challenges, Pinky it is you!!! I'm sure you'll come out of this hardship with so much wisdom, but what is so obvious to me is what an amazing job you have done with those beautiful daughters of yours. You must be so proud of them, as they are you. Keep the faith, you are in my prayers and thoughts. Also, big freakin' shout out to the wonderful men Beth & Holly have chosen to spend their time with. What a great family.

    God Bless, lots of love,
    Maureen aka Sista Love :)

  6. Pinky...You are getting better if you can write your own updates! Thinking of you always...kids say hello too!
